  4. I know you loathe spelling & grammar mistakes, but we all make them.

    May I be so bold as to point out a typo? If not, I completely understand.

    • Please do! I appreciate any and all feedback!

      • (I apologize if I ask you again in the future – I ask a lot of people because I don’t wanna step on anyone’s toes. I’ll try to remember your answer, though!)

        “22. I’m cold-natured – I always have a jacket with me or blanket mearby.”

        I’m sure that’s all I need to say. 😉 ❤

      • No need to apologize! I appreciate your asking first. I’ll fix it! Thanks for the feedback – You’re awesome!

      • Thank you so much for your kind words!! Personally, I just have a “copy-editor’s brain,” so I don’t see it as anything extraordinary.

        Also, I know writers are attached to their work, so I don’t want to make it seem like I’m criticizing it. Still, I can’t control my CEB. So, asking first is a compromise & it gives the author the chance to say what they want done.

        Great work, btw, keeping up with all these posts! 🙂

      • I was the copy editor for my college’s newspaper for over two years. I get it! We’re a lot alike.

        Thank you so much! This has been fun – It’s definitely stretched my brain.

      • Most definitely!! 🙂
