I'm going to post today on another p word: Proofing and it's importance.
Usually at some point during the morning I pull up my day's blog post and give it a quick peruse and read my comments. Last month, I sat down with my morning coffee, turned on CNN, pulled up my blog and gasped! On my short post, and y'all know most of mine aren't long:), was two--count them--two errors. One: I'd used the word to instead of too. And yes I'm using too many to, too, twos, close together:) And a sentence so awkward it made my brain hurt. I immediately made corrections but most of the blogster buds visit early and had come and gone. Let me just say here, thank you for your kindness in ignoring my blunders and pretending all was as it should be:) But as writers proofing is extremely important in all our endeavors. Because it's our craft we should hold ourselves to high standards. We are judged by what we write. I'll be the first to admit, I get lazy when it comes to emails, texting, and now apparently blogging. Blush. Blush. Hmm, maybe I should put closer proofing on my 2017 resolutions list. What you don't think I should put off improving my proofing skills that long.....perhaps you're right;)
