Writing tip of the Day:
Copy and paste is your friend. If you are writing a long passage involving a repeated character name, it might be easier to copy the name once and then hit a quick ctrl + V whenever you want that name to appear. It is two keystrokes opposed to having to write out the whole name. This is especially useful if you have a character with an unusual name, such as the main character of the book I’m writing now: Xandir.

New Blog Hop Starting Tomorrow: 
Get ready for the November Blog Hop. Stop by tomorrow for details.
