The typos that came back to bite you
I’ve been busy with reading, writing, and other things but thought I’d get something posted today for fun. After having a conversation with an author recently about the difficulties of editing, I won’t say who (she knows who she is), it occurred to me that the topic of typos might be interesting to bring up on the blog.
No one escapes them and we all know they sneak up out of nowhere. Leave a document for a while and you’re bound to find some that you’re sure weren’t there before. They come out of hiding like little cock roaches. Annoying little pests. So here is your chance to make light of the issue and share the ones you’ve seen or done. These could be mistakes you made or ones you found in other people’s work (let’s not name names if it’s someone else, though). Don’t be embarrassed. We all make them and will continue to do so.
Note– I read over this post several times before publishing so hopefully none show up in it.
