In this week’s episode, the first of a two-part series, Taylor digs into some listener submitted material and shares her thoughts on the importance of structuring sentences correctly and avoiding what she calls navel-gazing. In this episode Taylor focuses on:
~~ Naval Gazing: What it is, the problems it causes, and how to avoid it.
~~ How to feed visual elements to the reader in the right order.
~~ Why we must establish a sense of time and place for anything that follows to make sense.
~~ Why we have to show the reader what the character sees as she sees it and,
~~ How failing to do this creates confusion and a jarring reading experience.
This show is also available in video and can be seen on Taylor’s Patreon page here.
