The Impotence of Editing by Peggy Christie

There's a funny tongue-in-cheek essay about editing your own work over at The Horror Tree.  You can check it out here.  Along with the fun is a very serious look at being a professional writer.

Thanks, Sandra! That's a good piece. I've paid money for self-published stories that were painfully in need of proofreading. With my own work, I've found I can miss an error six times, then my girlfriend will spot it.

Yeah, it's so strange that a writer can read the same mistake over and over and never see it. I think in our mind's eye we're seeing what we intended to write and not what actually hit the page :)
