Every few months, my proofreading skills seem to take a nosedive that drops them from mediocre to abysmal. I’m clearly in one of those phases now. Random apostrophes (“She realized its time to shop, and took Johns car to make the trip”); excess words (“she went to a the store”); redundant words (“she went to the store shop”); meaningless words (“she went to the blizl shop”), forgotten words (“she to the blizl shop”), homonym problems (“Oh! I need too go too the blizl store too shop to”) — they’re all there.
I’m working on quality control but, until life outside blogging slows down (that means work and kid activities), things aren’t going to get better any time soon. Please bear with me and know that, whenever I catch these things (although that’s not often lately), I do fix them.
