Couldn't let it go.
I tried. I really tried - for almost five minutes, before my resolve crumbled - and at my age that's not all that's crumbling
It was just too easy: believe I'd eradicated all the mistakes get the books out and. And then I was reading one of my most fave authors the other day and found eight errors within the first three chapters, and these books are on their fourth re-print.
That did it for me, and now, half way through Old Geezers 3 for the umpteenth time I've already found four of my own.
I've never read an entire novel in my life without at least six grammatical or punctuation errors, and I doubt I will, but as these are my last novels, well perhaps forever, I've got to get them right.
I really want to get this done because a very large computer shop in these parts is flogging a brand new Windows 10 machine at a derisively low price and I want to get it before the inevitable price rise. Well get it now, I hear you say.
I know that if it's that cheap then it's presumably rubbish, but that doesn't matter because the second I get it home I'll be taking it apart and improving it, as I always do when I can't be bothered to build my own.
And if I did start playing then the novels wouldn't come out this side of the next millennium.
As always, thanks https://openclipart.org/
