Just a quick tip today:

Make sure your novel sounds great when read aloud.

Maybe one day your book will be made into an audio book! This will not only be great for readers with sight loss, but children who struggle to read, or who just love to listen to stories.

As you edit your work in progress, read each paragraph out loud. You might find you want to change your sentence structure, your punctuation, your word choices and your paragraph lengths.

Take time over this step. It will not only help when you come to record your novel, but it will almost certainly help with the flow of the written story, too. 🙂

Trust that helps!
