…is read their books and take responsibility for the errors. They don’t rely on copy editors, proof-readers or friends. So, any errors contained within the book are my fault and my fault only. Why do I say this, considering it’s not like me to admit that I’ve done something wrong? Well, I had an email from an author (I won’t give her name, but she is what I would class as a ‘proper’ author) gently reprimanding me for not checking my own work, and telling me that authors are responsible for their own out-put. So, not only can I not string a sentence together in real life, I can’t do it in writing, either!!! Let’s add this lesson to the many things that I’ve learned during the past few months.
Back to what I was originally going to post when I got up this morning (well, mid-morning): the book club (last of the Karma-related activites in my diary). I was quite nervous by 7.25pm, and I needn’t have been – everyone was really friendly. I did have something prepared, but they were happy just to ask questions, so I was glad to go with the flow. It was like chatting amongst friends, and I enjoyed it, once I got over my nerves. I hope I didn’t disappoint them. I’d love be part of a group like that, but my CFS means that I’m very unreliable, and I’d feel so guilty if I couldn’t attend a meeting – that’s what I love about the internet: it gives me the freedom to be me, without the restrictions I have in my every day life.
