Two things I frequently do is not put the closing quote at the end of dialogue and I’ll put a closing quote at the end of a sentence that’s not dialogue. I know I have to watch this when editing/proofreading. My big problem is that if I get too involved with the story while supposedly editing/proofreading, I miss instances of these to problems. I continually have to pull back when I’m proofreading and try to stay what I call “superficial” or “on the survface” and not get too involved with the story.
Well, here we are at the end of the workshop and I feel kind of sad. I got such a lot out of this workshop and really looked forward to each lesson.
Hope we’ll “see” each other again maybe in another workshop.
