Doing a Mash-up – quick tip!

One WayHaving decided which classic work you are going to heartlessly vandalise enhance with your own twist, you need to get a copy from somewhere. I went to Project Gutenberg, found the text for my (secret for now) novel and downloaded. I then started editing… can you guess what happened?

Yes – I’ve downloaded a US English version and I am British English! Result a tortuous mess of bulk changes around *or -> *our and many others! Joy! Maybe spend some time sourcing a British English version of get a better way to transpose spelling (and no doubt some vocabulary!).

Any tips from others?
