Most of us would rather pull our teeth than open the document that’s been nitpicked apart. But, I have to say. Some of my errors are really funny and I’m grateful to my readers for picking them up. Whether they have to nitpick or not!
Here are a few that made me laugh out loud:
I saddled up next to him. Now can’t you just see that? Saddling up next to someone. Hahaha. Actually, I meant to say sidled up next to him. Don’t ya just have to laugh?
That really peaked my interest. Another hahaha moment. What I meant to say was that really piqued my interest. Couldn’t you just see the interest peaking?
I removed the bowel for the cereal. Oops. How embarrassing. Look at what one little letter error can do! Of course I didn’t mean to say I was going to put bowel in the cereal or whatever. I meant bowl! Hahaha
These are just a few of my favorites. I’m sure there are lots more. The problem is we type slower than our minds flow. The mind is thinking one thing while the fingers are still lagging behind. When that happens, no telling what will appear on the page. Fortunately I catch most of my errors when I read over my work, but new, fresh readers catch more. It’s an endless process.
What errors made you laugh out loud? C’mon tell us. I’m sure you’ve got a few.
