I find myself proof-reading everything these days-books I read, my kids homework, my husband's emails...I can forgive typos, but I had to nicely point out to my daughter that: "Joe said, "Who is that? She's super cute," he thought," just doesn't cut it...which is exactly what she needed to do-cut one of them, and before posting it online. :) I'm hoping she went with thought.
My favorite, though, is when I have no critical points to make. When I can read and enjoy a book without thinking, "a kid that age would NOT do that," or "too many details...boring me to death," or other negative things.
Something I've been noticing a lot lately is the extensive detailed parts. It's interesting how one author can do it and I hate it and scan through it quickly while another author does it and I think, "Wow! How did they manage to write a whole page on that and keep it interesting?"
That's my new goal; to read through my manuscripts and find places where I can add details and strive to do it well. Wish me luck!
