Writing Video: Reading Aloud


How reading your work aloud can help you become a better writer. I read the entire thing between the first and second drafts. You can visit my YouTube channel for more videos about my writing journey. Thanks for watching!

  1. Good idea to read it aloud. Maybe it's also good to record it while reading and then listening to it.

    1. I tried recording short pieces, but it does take quite a long time to go back and listen. I think it would be useful for short sections that are supposed to be particularly lyrical. I bet that would also help when trying to get the dialogue to sound right.
