My mind still feels like it is on vacation, but doing OK.
Do you ever feel you are going batty? You write something down, reread it, and think, fine - done. Two days later, you look at it again and you think, how did I do that, was I having a brain drain? You find spelling errors or typos, even though you had used spell-check - or thought you did. You have gone over the top with placing commas, used wrong tenses of verbs, and run-on sentences have run amok. You don't think you use to do this; you prided yourself on your command of the English language, yet you have used a word which sounds the same as another but with a different spelling and meaning. Well, that is where I am finding myself now. How did I not catch this or that when I quickly proofed? "Quickly" might be the problem.. At this point, I should probably write, leave it alone for a day or so, re-read, leave it alone for another day, and then a week later, with a fresh perspective, do my last run-thru and publish. However, by that time, I probably would have changed most of what I originally wrote and added some new errors. Can't win, but don't judge me too harshly, I eventually correct myself. I am just in my over-the-hill stage of life.
At my last job we received a letter that told us that payment would be anally. I have to admit that the missing "u" made my day.
Tomorrow I will correct this post.
