Color-Coding and Editing your Sentences
Before sending the finished article to an editor for potential publication, we take time to look over our sentences, ironing out wrinkles in our prose, finding the missing comma—doing this sentence-level work. This Friday Writing Session will introduce participants to Wendy Belcher’s technique found in her book Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks. Belcher talks through how to color-code various words in your text through the Microsoft Word advanced find and replace function. Participants are encouraged to have a digital copy of their text available during this session so they can start color-coding during the session and leave with clear direction on how to revise their sentences according to this color-coded scheme.
