and then.... and then along came Jones, slow walking Jones

Since I've started writing I've found that if you pay attention to reader feed back there is real gold, "in thar hills." In this case a kind reader pointed out the one time in ten thousand words that I used "then" instead of "them". It didn't make the story any less readable, but offended my sense of right (write?).

Being a lazy sort I and not remembering the sentence he pointed out, I just searched for "then" with the plan of correcting that single error.

What I found instead is that I've been using "then" too many times! I've corrected and reposted, while cleaning up other errors.

Buy paying attention to my readers, I have improved my craft slightly.

Thank you all
