Double spacing after periods and other random info

Wednesday, January 7, 2009
Michelle had some great tips on her post:

I'm posting my thoughts here.

She mentions that double spacing after a period is old school. We just do one now. If you've made the mistake of doing it throughout your novel, just do a find and replace. In the find type two spaces. In the replace type one. It will fix the whole thing with minimal effort. And you will type faster. Always a plus.

She also has the great idea of making a location Thesaurus--a first hand account of certain locations for use in our novels. I think it's a great idea. Head over to her blog if you have any first hand experience with certain places. For instance, my sister-in-law has lived in Spain, Columbia, Brazil, Boston, and Washington DC. She'd know if the city was noisy, dangerous, dirty, poor, sprawling, tall, etc.


  1. Hey, thanks for the exposure of my blog! I want more traffic on there for the Location Thesaurus.

    Yes, the Argyle's are good looking, I'll agree! So glad my daughter has that blood in her. Hehe.
