Read Your Stuff Aloud

After all my years of teaching and being taught, I am convinced there is only one specific, reliable tip writers in training can be given: read your stuff aloud, if not literally, then with an inner voice attended to by the inner ear. It is the only sure way to spot the clinkers, the rum rhythms.



  1. I totally agree, but I find that even when I read it aloud, I still know how I intended it when I wrote it, so I find it even more helpful to have someone else read it aloud to me.
