It’s amazing how sentences seem perfectly fine until you hear them out loud. Then, you realize that a couple of sentences that look good on a page sound weird when spoken aloud. It makes me think it might be best for me to start listening to my books aloud before I complete my final draft, just to eliminate issues like I’ve heard in Ancient Ruins.
On that subject, I’ve completed listening to Chapter 30 of Ancient Ruins. The audiobook is just barely shy of 13 hours in length, and managing to keep my concentration on it and reading along from the book is difficult at times, so I can’t go through it as fast as I want to.
Still, the errors burst the slight inflation of my ego that I hadn’t noticed. I may do reasonably well, but I’ve still got a lot to learn, and there’s always room for improvement.
