Test Yourself

Amusing article in today's NY Times about copy editing. The copy editor invites you to catch 10 grammatical errors.
Here's the link, it's valid and virus tested. Enjoy.

I enjoyed taking the test, but am glad you can't see my score.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

I'm with you Dorothy! It's amazing how many times one can read a sentence and overlook a mistake. I got three right, which was just a lucky streak.

And the song from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend

That was fun and it reminds you how important it is to have an editor check your work and then you recheck the check... nothing is perfect, but at least it can seem to be :D

For most of those quotes I wanted to rewrite the whole thing.
