Dissecting Spoken Word
I've transcribed and dissected Erlichman's Daddy's Parking Lot Sermon. Lessons to take away: carefully plan the points at which you breathe. Use breaths like line breaks. Cascading line lengths can effectively separate and demarcate thoughts. One method: as a thought progresses, lines grow shorter and punchier. End with a short line, jump to a long one, new (related) thought.
