...and of course, as soon as I get the first draft printed out and sent to one of my proofreaders, I discover a cringeworthy screwup that pulls the reader right out of the story. It's easily fixable, but it's the kind of thing I should have caught before. Argh!


  1. "cringeworthy" I love that word!!
    At least you found it when it went to a proofreader and not after it was sent to the printer. I've been there, done that :-(

  2. True. It's just that I prefer my proofreaders finding syntax errors, logic bombs, or other editing opposed to saying, "Sheesh, Nate. How many times are you going to use this one device in the same story?"
