When it comes back, you see the little red marks form the editor’s pen scattered throughout the work. Nothing bad, just typos, the occasional misspelled word.
But you’re a published writer? How can you have typos, let alone misspelled words? I mean really now.
In my case, typing is not my strong suit. It never has been and never will be. And I had typing in junior high, but I also had an anti-left handed teacher. But that is neither here nor there. My first drafts are written in long hand and I convert that to the computer. I use the conversion to typed pages as my first revision, cleaning up dialogue and adding pages.
I know for some of you this doesn’t work, and that’s cool. This is what I have found that works for me.
Anyway back to typos.
I also enjoy watching television, which means binge watching Netflix as I type.
Ah, now we get into typos.
Sometimes they are frustrating, but other times they showcase a scene that might need a little more detail or attention that otherwise might have been overlooked.
So never overlook a typo, it may be hiding a gold mine.
Oh and before I forget, never, ever blindly accept what any spell check program says is wrong. They are, after all, programmed by humans.
