Quick Tip

As I was finishing my rough draft for a gentle fantasy chapter book (whoop! whoop!WIN_20150130_145337 big goal met this week!) I discovered a great trick.

Scrivener Users:

Did you know you could press “ctrl /” and a text statistics box pops up for the selection that is open?  The best part is it tells you the frequency of your words, so you can easily identify words you over use.

You already knew that didn’t you?  You’re so clever!  I happened upon it when I meant to hit “Shift /” to make a question mark.  Sometimes clumsy fingers pay off.  It usually just results in awkward auto-corrects.  #notsofunnywhenithappenstoyou 😉
