Yay! I won another contest, this one from Beth Fred. This is way too awesome. I should do another one myself, maybe after I give the blog a good polish. I'll shop around at the bookstores and see if they have anything good. Any ideas for what would make a good giveaway? I'm thinking another writing book would be a nice idea, but I might add something fictional.
I know what I'll do. I'll add a poll. You guys vote for the genre. See to the left? There it is.
Anyway, in writing news, I'm continuing my quest to shape up my WIP. Do you know what I've noticed is super helpful? Changing the font. Seriously. I switched it from Times New Roman to Calibri and (combined with the read aloud) I'm spotting mistakes I have no idea stayed in there this long. I don't really know why switching fonts helps so much. It's one of those weird ways you can trick your brain.
So, with help from crit partners and beta readers, things are coming along! How are your WIPs going? Do you have any tricks you use to help you spot mistakes?
