    Я|Reflections'♦ Author Tips ~ Tip #1

    You are writing a story, but at the end right before you post it, you realize you've went a little over the character (letter) limit. <p> Instead of deleting "useless" details, do this: <br> Go back and replace all the 'and's you have with '&'. Writers tend to use the word 'and' a lot, which is fine. So if you go back and change every single 'and' to '&', you will probably get back to 0 characters remaining or higher! <p> (I hope these tips will help any beginning authors or writers who struggle with these kinds of things! More tips will be written in the following results.) -&#1071|Reflections&#9830
