Atomium Escalator: Travelling through hyperspace in the Belgian tourist attraction
One of the things I've enjoyed most about The Force Awakens (and there's a lot of things) is seeing Harrison Ford on the press trail, not suffering Fanboy interviewers gladly. In one recent interview, where the question-asking guy clearly has no idea Ford is uncomfortable with the kind of nerdy hero worship he's inspired, the former carpenter drops some advice (at around 1:20) that any writer can benefit from:
"George, you can type this shit, but you cannot say it. Move your mouth while you're typing and see if you can say it."
Move your mouth while you're typing and see if you can say it. When I was in school mouthing what you was reading or writing was frowned upon, but now I'm older I do it all the time when I'm writing - whatever I'm writing. If it's hard to say, it's hard to read, and it won't sound good out loud or in someone's head.
Whether it's website content or a film script it's amazing how speaking something, rather than reading it, can make places where it doesn't flow stand out. And more often than not some glaring typos too.
