It Never Pays To Skim

Thursday, November 01, 2007

So I'm reading on the commute home and come across this passage:

"A friend of hers," Adrienne said. She glanced back over her shoulder at her father. He waved. Scene where Adrienne defends her roommate's decision to share a hotel room with another man. "You have women in here every night throwing themselves at you. You hardly have a right to get angry."

Wow.

Amie, I was reading that book on the commute home after a 10 hr day at the office. I kept reading that passage over and over, thinking it was my fatigued mind that couldn't make sense of it, till what I was reading finally clicked. lol.

Yeah, there are typos. Then there are TYPOS.

OMG!!!! Speechless, absolutely speechless. (Don't say it Ames)

This is why I use asteriks, separate the note from the rest of the MS AND highlight it in red with underlining.
