I transferred about eight chapters of one of my novels from my desktop to my laptop and found that it's filled with this crap:
â€œThat didnâ€™t take long.â€
â€œThank you. I have excellent attorneys.â€
EVERYWHERE I have quotation marks or apostrophes. Does anybody know of a freeware program that will get rid of that garbage? I HATE LIKE HELL to have to go through and manually correct all of it.
I saw a commercial for metal detectors and I had to laugh. The guy said, "I was finding the good stuff in my neighborhood the first day." Several years ago, our classy neighbor buried several appliances in what used to be his mother in law's in ground pool. So I couldn't help but think the only thing I'd be "detecting" in my 'hood is rusty appliances and beer cans.
