WANT YOUR BOOK TO BETTER COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR READER?
Hire me as your developmental editor (for plot development) or as your copy editor (aka the grammar and spelling police and so much more). WHEN I HAVE PROJECTS, I GLADLY WORK EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR.
~~ CREATIVELY UNLEASHED! ~~
Tips and Inspiration from Denise Barker, an All-Indie Author, Blogger and Freelance Developmental Editor/Copy Editor
The problem with pronouns is when you have two or more males (or two or more females) in a conversation and drop in "he." If Tom, Bill, and Brian are all talking, and you have several lines of tagless dialogue, can you, the reader, be certain if "he" is Tom or Bill or Brian?
Avoid any reader confusion in instances like this by changing any dubious "he" references to the person's name instead.
It's all about clarity, folks.
Keep on writing.
