A checklist for editing your stories.
No need to thank me.
I don’t know if I’m going to explain this clearly enough but here goes.
If you ever wanted to clear the formatting of text (think size, style, spacing, etc.), paste the text into the address bar of your web browser. Then copy it again and voila, your text won’t be bold, red, 32 pt. font, so on.
It works like a charm every time.
I do this so often.
Try it. See the magic with your own eyes.
Maybe you knew about this years ago. In that case, you should have told me earlier!
Look at it this way:
More thinking = More drafting
More drafting = More writing
More writing = More rewriting
More rewriting = More editing
More editing = More formatting
More formatting = More publishing
