when you find--
-- lots of em dashes at the ends of dialogue. my characters interrupt each other a lot.
-- lots of elipses and dashes. my characters pause their speaking and thinking a lot.
-- food. lots of food.
-- tea. seems they're always drinking tea when they talk. hmm...
-- sword fights. those are fun.
-- romance. lots of romance.
-- and kissing. don't forget that.
these are the things i've noticed as i've read through Eldala to edit for re-release sometime in the near future.
want to know the coolest thing i discovered?
even though it's my story and i know how it ends and i've read it like a gazillion times, i get so involved in the story that i forget to edit.
