When I posted the very beginning of my novel months ago, sheesh, I received comments from leslee and jayce (thanks again). leslee advised me to read it out loud. I read so fast, I didn't know if it would help me or not. Let me tell you, I'm reading through all the pages so far, and it has helped tremendously. There's something about the flow and rhythm that stands out and improves those silent words on the pages.
Just saying, you might want to try it as well.
