Strikethrough – TIP

When I’m writing dialogue I make a lot of use of the “strike through” type feature.

Strike through is a great way to leave possible dialogue on the page. You can play with some diction selections fairly easily without cutting and pasting and it’s easy to spot when going back to review or remove when you’re doing a final run through.

Plus if anything is left in by mistake, a letterer would not set it because it’s, well… struck through ▪
