It never seems editing is ever truely done, or a book ever perfect. I keep finding some blaringly OBVIOUS mistakes in my book, time after time, and it’s just plum embarassing…
I’ve read through my book at least ten times, and have had editors as well, but it’s ENDLESS. Sometimes I wonder if one can truly be both imaginative, AND have spotless grammar. I know in some books I read, I often catch something, even those books that hit the best seller list. Forgive me for slamming it, but Twilight was a good example, lots of errors, but see, then again I’m not slamming it, because I fear mine will be the same.
But what it comes down to is the story, and how it effects us, dispite the errors. I don’t think Mark Twain gave much hum bug to his frequent use of run on sentences.
I just often read over certain things, like were and where, especially when the rest of the sentence flows, so trust me, you will find those in my book. Even though I’ve scanned the thing, to what I feel, an obsessive level.
I am only human, but aren’t we all?
