I remember reading something by an author (I can't remember if it was comics, or prose) about why a writer shouldn't use, or should avoid using "later" and "meanwhile" to depict time lapse or scene jumps.

Anyone know about that?

I'll get back to you later about that. Meanwhile...I'll be reading other threads.

Not sure if that's what you're looking for, but it might get you started.

I like saying MeanWillie in lieu of Meanwhile and Lather instead of Later.
