    Pen and paper editing

    A while back, I wrote a post on my editing process, but I forgot to mention one of the more important steps I take when I’m trying to get to a polished manuscript. I call it the Kindle edit.

    First, I save my Word doc in the “Web page, filtered” format. Then I use Mobipocket Creator, a free tool, to turn that html doc into a .mobi file. There are still some formatting issues in this format, but it’s good enough to give you the effect of reading it in a somewhat published-looking format on the Kindle.
