5 Quick Writing Fixes - Writer's Life.org
This I knew already. From stuff I've read, I've learned it's not always necessary to say who said what, particularly when the same two people are conversing with each other.
This was one reason I didn't want to leave the people I mentioned in my memoir anonymous, since by saying "he," "she" or "they," it would not be clear in some cases who was being referred to, and there would be problems with who said what.
Yes, this is a big one. I tended to repeat some information in some chapters (I didn't delete it if I felt it was necessary), so I know I haven't been inconsistent in that regard. But now I must look it over again to see if I did miss any.
I was mostly aware of some errors in spelling I had made and some necessary words I had omitted by mistake. When I ran spell check, I saw that I had mistyped the word "antidepressant" more than once. I found that weird!
What else should you look out for when editing?
