Personal Stakes

As a recent addition to the MFA program at my university, I've been slowly building up my credits by taking courses that could only be deemed somewhat less of a risk in my mind.

I admit, I'm a coward, and I avoided a writing workshop for as long as possible.

Editing Errors

My first post in a long time and I've decided to post something small about an issue that has been concerning me for some time now.

Editing mistakes.

Now I know I've made quite a few mistakes of my own with my work. I tend to throw in a comma when you least expect it which I've been told throws off the meaning of my sentence. Go figure, right? But they are very pushy about commas when it comes to thesis work so I've since learned my lesson. Or I hope I have, anyway, so it's the thought that counts.

However, the mistakes I'm speaking of involve grammar. I tend to read and re-read, and on and on, etc. for months on end making sure I have the right words in my work. Unfortunately, this just doesn't seem to be the case with the latest books I've been snatching up each release day for the last month or so.
