Typos

Another one for today:

typos
in my posted prose. . .
my fingers
red from stringing
sentences together

—June 2012

Whoever thought composing a few lines of text for a blog could be so big a task? I write, I condense, I tweak, I tweak the tweaks. And then there are the typos—and then more typos after retyping an entire post because something screwy happened to the formatting. To think I used to write and edit reams of my own work for a living. But now, having trouble with just a handful of sentences? Crimson-faced, I'll try to due better nest thyme.

  1. I liked this one a lot. And lol about nest thyme! Typos happen often, even to the best of us.

  2. Hi, Olga, thanks. In my jobs, I wasn't allowed to have typos. I think I still want to scream when I see them, lol.
