I'm having someone help me with a final check through my MS before sending it to betas. I'm shocked at how many things I've missed. I know grammar isn't my strong point so I expected all the missed commas, but oh how many times I've misspelled a word. Waive for wave. Solder for soldier. Thing for think. Sometimes I have words repeat repeat themselves. When it's a real word spell check doesn't get it and I, having read it all so many times before, see what I think is there rather than what is. Next time I'll print it out and read it out loud. Or I can just give it to my mom and have her fix it again. Thanks Mom!
What do you do to help find all those nitty gritty problems? And can we ever find them all?
