I have been having this same issue and really need some help on it. I seem to have a problem with moving a scene forward. I catch myself going on in a way that makes it sound runny. I move the scene forward with the word "and" and then sometimes "and then" and also with "He did this.... and then he did this... and then he did this...." so on and so forth. I don't know if that is bad, but it makes my sentences and scenes sound bad. For an example, one of my sentences might sound like: "He got out of his car and shut the door. He walked over to the open door slowly and then stopped just short. He listened for a moment and could hear the soft cries coming from behind the door." Sorry for the brevity of this but I think it gets the point across. I just want to know if there is any description technique for this or something that might aid me. Thank you in advance!
