Any idea how to make scenes about researching on a computer interesting? I suppose it’s similar to reviewing evidence in a typical police procedural, only this is using a computer. Is it better to establish the computer at the start of the scene and then write ‘normally’ about the character’s findings? Or, is it okay to write in all the clicks....and click click click away? And, emails? I have no idea what the conventions are for mobile texts and emails either...set them apart in the text? For cellphones, I’ll write, “His phone vibrated in his pocket” - which sounds a bit sexual and no good for a tense scene. So, I’ll change it to: “His phone dinged with a message”. Dinged, really? I delete dinged and replace with...Buzzed? Rang? Rang seems dull. Next thing I know, an hour has passed and my character still hasn’t picked up the message because his creator - me - can’t decide how to handle his cellphone. (These minor stylistic descriptions can really slow me down!) Finally, are there any authors who are good at incorporating tech equipment into their story, (without it sounding like an info dump or clunky)? Thanks!
