comment Techniques for minimizing redundancy in a document, paragraph or sentence?
@leeand00, first paragraph should be an introduction or, if feasible, an abstract; the purpose is to ease your readers in not (necessarily) to make a summary. Everything in-between is your own business. At end you should have some sort of conclusion; not necessarily a verbose one, simple facts will do (particularly for technical writing) and simply wrapping things up with a opinion is sufficient for others. Just my take on it.

+1 for the tip on using "said" :) I'm not really sure about stage business though; I really wish to avoid these sort of narrator or semi-narrator pauses in dialog (if possible), as a matter of personal style.

I'll take that as a bomb shell on the 2nd style. Ty for the clear explanation. :)

Not really writing a novel; meaning what I'm writing is not near novel length. However, you make a very good case for action tags and how they improve the writing.
