“If it sounds like writing, rewrite it.”
If you spoke the same way you’d write a college paper, you’d be getting a LOT of weird looks.
Or you’d find yourself gifted with the ability to make people fall asleep the INSTANT you start taking.
Insomnia cures aside, the way we’re taught to speak and write are WORLDS apart!
And to keep people interested (and awake), write like you talk.
It SOUNDS simple – but takes some practice!
Try recording yourself while you pretend to talk to your friend. You’ll hear your true self come out – and transcribe it yourself to learn your natural speech patterns.
Have you given this a whirl? How did it go?
