website, Facebook group, or Goodreads Book Club. The hosts for this month's discussion are Christine Rains (no website available), Dolarah, Ellen, Yvonne Ventresca, and LG Keltner.
We've been posed the following question this month: What are your pet peeves when reading/writing/editing?
Reading: People talking to me when I'm trying to focus, seeing mixed-up homonyms like "phase" and "faze," inconsistencies with details, and inaccuracies.
Writing: Being interrupted when I'm writing or trying to write, having Microsoft Word (particularly on my netbook) be unresponsive when I'm trying to type and ending up with gibberish (uninstalling or inactivating programs I didn't want reduced the frequency of this annoyance), and having the cursor bounce around onscreen when I'm trying to write in a moving vehicle.
Editing--Finding mistakes after multiple rounds of editing. Double peeve points for mistakes that end up in the published story.
