editing

Edit once, edit twice, then edit again. Keep reading it. Print it off and read it some more. Come back to it a week later, then ask several others to read it.

Common sense yes? Well, maybe... Mum read HC, I read it, my BF read it, 2 CP's read it - several others still have it and how many picked up on the error in this sentence?

“Did your mother never tell you not to eat with your mouth full?”

one!

what error? Just read it very very carefully.... Yep, that error. See I know what I mean and most people know what I mean so read it as if it said it lol.

and its raining, so mum isn't getting her car back anytime soon. I don't want to have to start walking to and from work in the rain. Its meant to be a really hot summer? We had 4 days and now tis back to the rain again. Still, its made the grass nice and green once more so its not all bad.

personally i'm blaming hubby cos he's finally put the washing line up in the garden. :)

his new jobs going well. he comes in for lunch :) which is cool. And right now wet. :)

I'd like to be able to reconfigure this layout and make up my own. Maybe one day. When I work out the html required.

I committed the sin of not re-reading something more than once and sending it to my editor recently and I'm paying for it. I get too impatient.

I think I accepted your friend request on Facebook but I've been so busy this week I'm like a chicken with no head. I'll check tonight and accept/add you if I haven't yet.

Thanks for commenting on my blog, too. I hope no one would iron their shirt while it's on. :) But I've seen fiction characters do some silly things. Of course I've seen real people do silly things, too.
