Check it out ...

Sometimes I hear voices in my head... okay... ALL THE TIME. Haha. I am a writer! This time, however, it's actually Fergie (pop/rap singer) in my head. In one of her songs she says, "Check it out..."

Okay. Maybe the typed words are not quite as exciting as the voice in my head.

Anyway, helpful post for those of us who don't know everything:

What is the most helpful tool you utilize in Word? My critique partners and I use the comment balloons all the time, but another feature I find helpful is the find/replace option. If I catch on that I'm using a word or phrase too much, I can use this feature and find out how many time I actually have used it, and replace it with something better.


  1. I do this too. I guess we all do. I wonder what it was like for writers who had to use typewriters and look everything up at the library? *shudder* No wonder it took like forever to write a book.

  2. I'll have to check out the comment balloons. Thanks for the tip.
