Self-edit better with software you already own! Whether you're a writer editing your first novel or a seasoned author wanting to provide your editor with cleaner copy, searching out particular words in your manuscript can help you self-edit with confidence. Weasel words aren't just words that have weaseled their way into your writing and need to be tossed back out; many can alert you to places where rewriting will help keep readers enthralled. If you don't have the luxury of having a writing expert point out your mistakes, Word, Open Office, and Scrivener can be taught to highlight your weasel words with just one click of a button. And with the clear instructions and examples in this book, you'll know what to do with each and every weasel word you encounter. Inside this self-editing mini-workshop for novelists, you'll learn how to set up your writing software to catch everything from grammar flubs to writing craft problems. You'll be certain you've never used a single your or you're incorrectly, you'll find places where you've told instead of shown, and much more. Understanding weasel words can help writers at every stage improve their writing without the hefty cost of extra editing.
