Editing 101

What is wrong with this sentence?

She slid her hands into the coats of her pocket.

I swear I must've read it ten times before I clicked. oO

When I read the post on my google reader, I see you had the word "her" twice in the sentence. Now you only have one "her".

That's cause I fixed it *g* I made a typo while typing out the original sentence. Talk about irony!

Willa said...

I have deep coats on my pockets too! Lol!

I know what's wrong! I know what's wrong! And I'm with Missy ... you need anything read, I'm your man, er, woman. Whatever. ;)

HaHa...How come MY pockets never come with coats? I think I'm getting seriously gypped by the jean companies :P!!!!....You know, honestly, it might not be such a bad idea to have insulated pockets sometimes. I personally hate the cold! Brrrrrr

Hi Nalini!!

Seneca said...

LOL!!
Where can I get a pocket like that? hehe

LOL! Sometimes if you stare at the word 'pockets' long enough, even when you know you've spelt it correctly, it looks wrong.....then again, the same thing can happen with 'the' :)

Tracy said...

*snort* Happens to everyone! :) Exactly how many coats are in her pocket? lol

It's a sign you are working too hard when something like that happens. I know I've been working too hard when I stare at the word "the" thinking it's spelled wrong! Ha! Take a nice coffee/tea/cocoa break, I'm sure you have earned it.

Hope you all have a fabulous day!
