I learned a new trick for my toolbox this week thanks to https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/ !! It involves the combined use of dialogue tags, action beats, and nothing during scenes. I had the dialogue tags down and the action beats but I didn’t often use nothing. I see, however, how it breaks things up and doesn’t leave a scene feeling so cluttered. Do you use more than one for these? All? What’s in your toolbox for writing?
