When I’m writing, I commonly leave myself brackets around words that I either need to go back in the typed document to fact check, or that I need to find a synonym for. In the pictured case below, it’s a fact check. I hand write my drafts and my first line of editing is when I type my written sections up, usually a chapter at a time. Do you do this? If not, it might help! For me, it gives me permission to keep writing and not stall my progress with a word check.

I am an editor for HCS Publishing, a very unique independent publishing house that's based in Gloucester, VA. We look for stories that are exceptionally well told, and steampunk elements are always a plus. Check us out at hcspublishing.com and you might see my name on some books, as I'm an author too. My fantasy novellas "Civil Dusk" and "First Watch," and my historical fantasy novels "Hollow Thunder" and "The Loyalty of Dew" are available on amazon.com (and the Buy My Books link in my blog here) and my short stories have been featured in two anthologies from HCS Publishing.
