Here's a bit of an addendum to yesterday's post.
I've received two rather thoughtful comments (which I will reply to directly when I have a bit more time).
Without being too specific, these are the sorts of comments I enjoy.
They were polite, one was positive, and the other was more explanatory about the correspondent's reaction to certain errors.
Now, his reactions aren't mine, but I can at least understand where he's coming from.
I try to get this sort of thing out of my writing, and I think I'm reasonably successful at it, but due to the sporadic nature of my writing, I don't use an editor.
I do proofread (and reread for clunky writing ) before I post, but in the nature of things I'm not likely to catch all my errors.
I hope that my errors don't bother those who are kind (or bored ;-) ) enough to read my stuff too badly.
Thanks for writing.
In other news, there are chapters of "Blackmail" and "Whitewater" completed and nearly ready for posting I want to do a bit more rounding out on both of them, plus a final polish.
