Voices in the reader's head...

"Writing isn't just on the page; 
it's voices in the reader's head. 
Read what you write 
out loud to someone -- anyone -- 
and you will catch all kinds of things."  

~ Donna Jo Napoli

I agree with Napoli. Whenever I write something, I always go back later and read it aloud -- to myself, to our cockatiel, to my kids. I always learn more about my writing and discover more quickly what needs to be rewritten when I do this than I do when I read it silently to myself. Have you tried reading your work out loud? If so, did it help you with your writing?
