Simplest Editing Technique EVER!

Read Your Stories Aloud

This is particularly helpful for dialogue as J.L. Stratton points out in his blog post. Not only does he give us the ultimate facepalm with his simple revelation that reading dialogue aloud the way it’s meant to be heard is great editing strategy, but he also reminds us that there are ways to indicate the speaker INSIDE the quotes so you don’t have to use he said/she said all the time. Genius!
