Fast forward to the next day. I re-read my soon-to-be-published tome. Ack! How did "find" become "fine?" On the second read through, my eye picks up the phrase, "paint ships." Now if the piece concerned painting ships, this would be appropriate, but it's about selecting paint colors. Let's take out that "s" and replace it with a "c." Ah, that's better: paint chips. By the 6th print preview, despair grips me. Will I ever be ready to hit the "Publish" button???
Lesson learned: Read through the entire preview before releasing your words into the blogosphere. An editor may be lurking around the next corner.
