What the eye refused to acknowledge
I am constantly amazed at what escapes me when I re-read what I have written, to be picked up by someone else at beta reader level, or copyedit stage (or so I hope).
Here are some great ones from my latest, which had to be pointed out to me:
'I wouldn't be adverse to that solution.'
...and laid a hand around his shoulders.
peels of laughter (great visual image, that one)
the abode buildings (I meant adobe!)
'Then it would have have made any difference if you had been there.' (Huh?)
And banged some sense the chaff into your head! (Double huh?)
...born with a withered arm of a clubbed foot
Thanks, Karen, for wading through the dross...
