So Much Rambling Going On
So Much Rambling Going On: Have you ever picked up a book that you were so excited about reading only to find once you opened, you were immediately turned off because of so much rambling?
Other times, it is just their style.
I do my best not to be a rambler and think that it is an excellent general rule to follow. Picking up a book that has entire chapters of nothing but the description can be quite daunting, kind of like sitting in the June heat during a three-hour wedding.
When I find myself rambling, I often switch to having the characters describe through dialogue, what is going on around them. It is not easy but can be quite rewarding.
As I have said before, I am not an editor or publisher, only an author. But I would like to share what I have learned thus far with you. Rambling is a big no-no.
