(Sorry guys, doing taxes. Got it done a full two hours before the deadline this year!)
When you see a typo, do you look down at the keyboard to see how close the letters are? The proximity of c to x is the reason I type “brb” instead of “be back in a sec.”
Should you forgive or forget? Grammarly did an interesting blog post about typos. As Ermi and I edit Blind Sight and the Picture it & Write Publication, we’re getting some good laughs. We have to remember that there are some times to pull out the red pen and mark-up every comma splice and typo, but there are also times to overlook them (aka the earlier stages).
How do you feel about typos? Can you forgive and forget?
