Why I Proofread My Manuscripts So Many Times (#6)

“That’d help,” I said, then looked at my hands to finish the song while Chaz talked called the stage crew guy who was going to come and pick up the spinet.

And somehow I've not noticed this in the last six months' worth of re-reading this ms.  Oddly enough, the two people who've been proofreading to help me have missed it, too.  How?  The mind boggles.  Truly.


  1. I don't know about you, but I talk-call all the time. (Whatever that is)

  2. I think the proofreading service make a separate read-through to catch any capitalization problems with proper nouns. Focus on the names of all people, places and things. I have all ready keep this service in UK.

    1. Since this is spam advertising, I feel no guilt when I say that it indeed looks like you need a proofreading service -- desperately.
      Such irony. Thanks for the laugh.
