After hearing me praise this novel, my children asked me to read it aloud to them, which gave me a chance to notice this: "shimmied" where it should be "shinnied." *sigh* Still a good book and very fun to read aloud, just diminished a little in my eyes.
And lots of us of the editorly persuasion go through pedantic phases, don‘t we? I had an unusually short one, for some reason — annnd now I suddenly have a handful of offbeatish ideas for writerly flexibility exercises. Haha ... oh, man.
Litsy discussions are good. 😉 4w
Still thinking about those flexibility exercises! I was just talking about them an hour or so ago. Seriously considering doing something with that crazy idea, and it‘s all thanks to the superior conversational skills of Littens, haha! 4w
