Weekly writing check-in: the one with a character named Macro

 

So, I was working on a story this week with a character name Marco. Only one problem. About every other time I used his name, I spelled it Macro. Did I see this mistake? No. But when I reviewed the story with text-to-speech? Oh, but did I hear it.

Every time I think: oh, this manuscript is pretty clean, I can skip the text-to-speech, I find something. So now, even though it takes time, I run everything through either a program on my PC or send it to my Kindle.

So … that’s my writing tip for the week. If you don’t have text-to-speech, you can always do it the old-fashioned way and read your story out loud.

In writing news, not as many words this week, but I did get some. I spent a lot of time with the revising, editing, and listening tasks–and ridding my story of a character named Macro.
