I'm going over the tattered draft of my novel and coming up with some irritating mannerisms. One stems from the fact that I didn't always integrate dialogue and action. I would write something like: "I'm leaving now," said Janet. She put on her coat and went out, slamming the door. Then I read (I'm sorry I can't remember where) advice on integrating, which the advisor called the 'walk and chew gum' syndrome. SO--I began instead to write something like: "I'm leaving," said Janet, putting on her coat. "Now." Going out, she slammed the door. Now I have '-ing's all over the place. Has anyone got some really fantastic snippets of their writing to illustrate how they like to do it, or tips about integrating dialogue and action?
