I thought I’d post some writing tips in honor of nano. I’m going to be talking about stuttering, because that’s something that lots of writers get wrong.
I’ve seen stuttering done like this countless time: “w-w-well, I. . . I m-mean, you k-know . . .” and it bothers me, because that’s not how people actually stutter. not how I stutter, anyway. it might be different for others.
