From my editor…
In addition, I’ve tried to make Steve’s thoughts/conversation more guy like (one syllable, simple straightforward).
As opposed to us literary type guys who lean more toward the loquacious. I see.
Watch those multi-syllabylliliac words there, Roy. I got my RED PEN out today!
Wait, your editor wants a stereotype?
Keera: she didn’t really change that much after all … and didn’t make all his dialog one-syllable either, lol. But I did have a lot of flabbery, plus a bunch of throwaway words generally (“that,” “just”). Good to know for my current WIPs as well!
Good editors make things better.
I’d like to click “like” on this reply.
