Sometimes I really do worry about my ability to see things. I don't mean in everyday life - I mean in my own stories.
This isn't the first time that I've done this very stupid thing - I referred to it in my post 'Proofreeding Your Story' a while back.
So what is it I've done? Well. I've managed once again to send off a story with not one, but TWO characters who change their name halfway through! This was after I had read it through many times and my husband had also proofread it (no, I'm not blaming him!)
I am just lucky that the very lovely People's Friend liked it enough to kindly point this out and ask for a re-write. I would not have been surprised if they had just thrown it straight in the bin or in the rejection pile. I think this shows three things.
1. I am a hopeless proofreader
2. I don't learn form my mistakes
3.The People's Friend are a lovely to work for
If you find any typos or other mistakes in my posts, you now know why!
Please make me feel better by saying I am not the only one to have done something so annoyingly silly.
