Sorry to post yet another thing, but this really is one I can't manage to google. I'm trying to describe the action of putting your thumb on the side of a number of pages, or a deck of cards, or a stack of money and letting them slip so they make that "prrrrt" sound. I've been staring at it for a about half an hour yesterday night (yesternight?), but I couldn't come up with anything better than "she raced through the pages". Which is dumb. One more thing. There are several occasions where I write something about a TV show host, called Ross Williams. Now, when a senior crew member mentions him, they'll call him Ross. They know eachother. My character calls him mister Williams. She works for a fickle man. When I describe him outside of dialogue I know I need to use mister Williams when it comes to things about him relating to my main character, for example: She knew mister Williams was waiting. However, when I say something about him to clarify to the reader I don't know which way to go. He's not Ross to us, we don't know him that well. Mister Williams seems way to formal. I've been using a few instances of just "Williams", but I'm bouncing back and forth between all three versions, which just looks like I can't make up my mind. So, if you understand anything of what I wrote here, what's the proper way to go about this?
