Finished 11; 21,153 word count

Writing Tip: My particular goof ups saw the light of day in today's writing. The thing with typos is that each writer has his/her own list of frequent foul-ups. Mine are our for out, and for an, and of for off or off for of. And you know spell checker doesn't catch that kind of error. But if you know your particular foibles, you are more likely to catch them on the re-read. And if you read a scene several days later, you are even more likely to see them.


  1. For whatever reason, I always get "was" and "saw" mixed up. Once I found "corn" instead of "cord" during an action scene, and it made me laugh pretty hard. :)

    Good luck with your writing!

  2. I get "who" and "how" mixed up, which led to funny results when the sentry demanded, "How are you?"

  3. I always end up with "and" for "an" and put an apostrophe s when I mean the word to be plural. *sighs* I should probably go back and check for more of those.
