Being a writer, when am I reading someone else's work, I stop reading because these frustrate my reading; too much backstory, long descriptions that are not necessary for the story, and the dialogue much too long like a lecture, or too short, or not with the character's personality.

I have also noticed people listen to books on audio, or read short novels of 15 to 30 thousand words. I think because of our films and television we are more illiterate than the past generations and more images to read with movies and computers and television
However, what do I know? - This is just a bobbieism!
I agree. I don't like too much back story or description. Just enough to keep me grounded in the story.ReplyDelete
Wishing you a Wonderful-Writing Year.
Thanks Sandra, the description must be woven in the story bits at a time. And I think treated as a character - make places more alive.ReplyDelete
