I don’t know about you but I am hopeless as spotting typos. I dare say there are a fair few on this blog. Occasionally people are good enough to point them out and then I can correct them, but I’m sure there are plenty that go unspotted!
Sometimes typos can be quite amusing – not to mention completely changing the meaning of what you are trying to say.
A while back, while a group of my characters romped along in their adventure, someone kindly pointed out that the moment I'd turned my back my MC was peeing out of the helicopter. (He was meant to be peering.)
Honestly, if you don’t keep a close eye on them they get up to all sorts of mischief!
So here I am, trawling through my MS and trying to spot all the typos. Sometimes I can read a page ten times and still read what I meant to say instead of seeing what’s really there! Changing the font size and printing it out helps. But I bet I won’t get all of them – no matter how hard I try.
I can assure you though – nobody’s peeing anywhere they shouldn’t be!
