O is for Oops

Apparently, following  the alphabet is a bit more difficult that I anticipated -- but then it gives me the opportunity to address those moments when "we writers" make careless errors.  We all do it. Sometimes it goes unnoticed and other times it turns into a major issue, but it happens. If you are writing professionally, chances are you have an amazing editor that catches your errors for you.

If you don't have an editor, enlist the help of another writer -- or a grammar Nazi  if grammar is your weak point-- to read your work for you to catch those pesky errors that evade the writer's eyes.

If that isn't an option, set your work aside and review it the next day for errors.
