I'm still finding mistakes in INNER CITY. So once again I'm working my way through the novel and trying to get it perfect. It's dawning on me just how important and specifically skilled a good proof reader is.
Last night I found a sentence with a word missing. Now I don't know how many times I've read through the thing - either the passage was the very last change/draft I made. Or my brain is filling in words that it expects to be there. I think this is more likely. You know - 'A stitch in saves nine' - and the missing time amongst a full page of words is filled in by a hopeful brain. Anyway, I am going over it again. Hopefully I will get them all this time!
