      Wasn’t it fun? I couldn’t help but think that it must have taken a lot of time to figure out and set up!

    Great links in this post. The articles on internal dialogue and character description are valuable for any writer. And the SmartEdit scanner is AWESOME. It doesn’t replace your own editing (and it shouldn’t), but it will help you if you know there are words you use too much or that you have a penchant for adverbs. And it will point out words you didn’t know you overuse or if you’re leaning on certain cliches. A terrific tool for writers. And FREE. How can you beat that!
