Mistakes, and more mistakes

I just reread my last post and found a couple of mistakes that really makes me a tad frustrated.

A writer works and works to get rid of all mistakes and still the post, book, article or whatever is published with a few mistakes included.

We have to remember that we are only human and until the Spell Checker these programs have can actually identify the exact word one is looking for in that exact sentence structure and use the correct spelling of that exact word, I guess we'll just have to put up with a few errors sliding under our watchful eyes.

Don't let mistakes bother you. Write down as quickly as you can the story you want to tell, then painstakingly go through it correcting all the mistakes you can find. If you're luckier than I, you will have a good friend who will read your MS and point out the mistakes you  miss.

Good luck.

In case you didn't know this, I review books and you can find most of my reviews on Amazon.com and my website www.lucilleperkinsrobinson.com in the blog there. If you have a published book of any sort or a book in progress that you want someone to read and point out mistakes in, just email me. I do this for free although you have to send me the book or send me a pdf copy of it or of the work in progress. I just like to read. PS I prefer the books because I can carry them wherever I go. I don't have a good electronic reader and no money to purchase one. Besides reading on computers or ebook readers hurt the eyes.
