One thought on “Episode 101 – Dillon Mesquitta and Removing Reader Burden

  1. Hi Dillon. Your story sounds great! Jeff, providing feedback within the context of removing burdens from the reader was enlightening. Your comments made sense and gave me ideas on how to integrate utterances (dialogue) and world-building so that they enhance the reader’s experience instead of interrupting the flow (pace) of dialogue causing the reader to go back (rewind) and re-read to discover what they missed. Having the opportunity to sit in while you and Dillon discussed her story was a great learning experience! Thank you!
