Insecure Writer’s Support Group (Aug)

The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. On this day we post about our thoughts, our doubts, and the fears we have conquered. We discuss our struggles and triumphs, and offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling.

Every post opens with a question (a blogging prompt, if you will), and this month's is: What are your pet peeves when reading/writing/editing?

There are lots of little things that will bother me in a story, but the worst is glaring errors and typos that any half-decent spellcheck software would catch. Even if you can't afford an editor, and don't have a friend you can trust with a beta read, there is no excuse not make use of the tools available.

A lot of writing this month, with no fewer than three stories started, but nothing wrapped up and ready to publish. The follow-up to our first anthology is done, and should be published soon, so I will likely get one of those three stories done and published to take advantage.
