Do you want a great tip?

Well, I’ve got 3 editing tips for you!

If you’ve read any of my posts you know that I’m a bit weak when it comes to self-editing. Always searching for a new tool, new tip or a better way to edit my writing.

Should I ever find a shortcut for fixing my mixed up tenses, I’ll be over the moon happy.

Writing involves way too much DIY editing. So I rely on several editing programs, but no program is a substitute for a great hands on tip by a successful author.

Love, love, love when I learn something new that helps me!


Thanks to Rachel Carrera, Novelist for requesting editing tips and to  Kristina Stanley for her terrific tips.

I really liked Kristina’s suggestion to keep a spreadsheet to track things like scene beginnings.

Scene beginnings! Never thought of that! Thanks Kristina.

Now gotta go work on my spread sheet.
