In spite of my tendency to be meticulous about grammar and spelling, I am not good at proof reading. I find it very hard to remember what I am doing because I get caught up in the content and begin reading for the enjoyment. I end up missing things. Consequently after five or six drafts my manuscripts are still full of errors. I suppose I can comfort myself, however, that the book I published still had typos in it when it went to print. That was even after a both style editor, and a copy editor, had gone over it.
