Wow. I am very impressed with Tess Hilmo's post today. (She should start paying me for continuing to refer you back to her blog). Anyway, she recommends a great search technique for your manuscript that I hadn't done before. Go check her post here.
It reminded me of a post Damyanti did on Give a Girl a Pen a couple weeks ago about using passive voice. That was a huge eye opener for me and really strengthened my manuscript. (Of course, Damyanti always puts up thought-provoking posts) Check out the comments to see the ridiculous sentence I discovered.
I love when other writers share their secrets!
Okay, enough shout-outs and blog-surfing. Back to writing the novel.
