NaNoWriMo 2014: Day 18

I should save the editing materials for the end of the month, but what the hell, you can bookmark it now for future use.

Natural Readers is a text to speech program you can use on your manuscript. I don't like having to read my own work, so I let the computer do it.

Reading is all well and good, and free. What I find is my brain will still gloss over mistakes from reading too fast, becoming impatient, etc... We'll still "fill in the gaps" mentally and move on, so having a partner on those first edits is critical. It's easier to pick on a mistake from someone else than to catch it ourselves.

That's it for today. Get to work, there's less than two weeks left!
