A simple tip

Everyone has a different way of doing things, and writers are no exceptions. Of course, in the world of writing, there’s nothing to say that one writer can’t glean some of the same methods to turn out words as another. I’m specifically ignoring plagiarism, which shouldn’t be done anyway.

In this case, I want to mention using two colons. :: just like that, in your text.

I’ve discovered a tip, most especially when it comes to loong manuscripts like Wizard’s Apostasy. When I turn the computer on and want to go to the chapter I am currently working on, I do a search for “::” in the body of the text. If I put it in the text after “Chapter Twelve” or “Chapter Fifty-Eight” or “Chapter Eight Hundred and Forty Seven,” it saves a bunch of scrolling.

Use three, if you’d like. Whatever you can dash out quickly into a search box.

You’ll find that you save time, and this means more time for writing!

Happy Writing!
