Editing

My writing career and Windows 7 arrived somewhat simultaneously. I edit my piece daily, sometimes weekly and still have after thoughts. On one occasion I wished to change the word ‘den’ because it reminded me of a lion’s cage. But the word appeared  in more than a dozen places. What better way than to seek Ctrl H to help me Find and Replace all.

Immediately after making the changes I saved my draft and the copy before I logged off. When I next opened the file I was horrified to find it in a total mess. The word ‘suddenly’ appeared as ‘sudcottagely,’ and ‘independent’ as ‘indepencottaget’ just to mention a few.
