So my MC is drifting through nonexistence as a "babble of chaotic whispers" and I need to give the illusion of some time passing. If I can manage to go on with a few lines of nonsense can I give the reader the illusion that some time has passed? I almost feel that I should leave like 4 pages of scribbles between my last line and when things start to come back to coherency. Leaving it with my last line and immediately moving forward I feel I'm not capitalizing on the gravity of the situation. What are some tricks I can employ?
