Confession is good for the soul. It is, really.
Most of you know that my biggest ‘almost’ query mistake involved the line ‘highly regarded agent’. It’s just amazing how the meaning changes when you accidentally substitute a‘t’ for‘d’ in the word regarded. Spell-check does not catch these mistakes for you. You must find them yourself. The horror.
I must confess to another mistake I hope none of you make. When listing the organizations that you belong to…be certain all the initials are there. Because SCBWI doesn’t mean much if you leave out the C for Children’s. Then it’s just SBWI and that could have quite a few interpretations.
Santa Barbara Wellness Institute
Seabed Wind Farm Interaction
School Buffer Walkability Index
Better ones I made up:
Strippers Between Work, Inc.
Schizophrenic/Bi-polar Women’s Institution
Stalking by Writers Initiative
I think these should be formed immediately!
The point I’m trying to make is this…can you proofread enough times?
I don’t think so.
