On Tuesdays I post a tip for writers.
Today - Repetition.
Remember trawling through your manuscript trying to spot the repetitions, such as "Who's calling," he called.
Or perhaps, "He eyed the maid with interest. "Aye," he said, looking her in the eye, "I'm Iron Jack, the ironmonger, and I've come to collect Eileen's ironing."
I know, none of your writing is as bad as that. But if you laughed guiltily at the first example, here is the answer. A neat little downloadable gadget that will scan your manuscript for you and do all the hard work.
Here's the link.
