So I’m a woman and you’d think I’d know the difference between woman and women.
I took a month off this summer from writing. I spent the time at the cottage with family and dogs having a wonderful time. Before I left for the cottage, I’d written about 40,000 words of my fourth novel, Look the Other Way.
After my return and before getting back to writing, I decided I’d better read what I’d written.
If you haven’t taken time away from a novel you’re writing, it’s an amazing experience. I was surprised and pleased by what I’d written. Well, with most of it anyway.
This brings me back to woman/women. I know how to use this word correctly, and yet, I found 2 places where I’d used it incorrectly.
Stepping away from the novel for a while and then reading it again, made these errors jump out at me. I’d be embarrassed if I, as a woman, sent this to anyone to read, and hadn’t caught the error.
Do you have a word your hands seem to want to type the wrong way?
