I am going to start this blog with one thing you likely already know and one thing that many people unfortunately—really—do not know. First, you likely already know (at least I pray to the powers that be that you already know) that without a good resume, you are not likely to be considered for the job you want.
I have had the opportunity in my career to work with many writers—of both the technical and creative variety—and even more editors. In a conversation with my friend Tom, who is also an editor, he expressed relief that he does not have to have his work edited because he has the skills to do it himself.
In my work over the past few years as a professional editor, I feel like I have seen it all in terms of writing errors. I am not talking here about the debatable Oxford commas, or the proper spacing between sentences. Today’s blog begins a series on ten of the most common errors that authors should work to avoid in their writing. Over the next ten Thursdays, I will be bringing you a different grammatical error to avoid, beginning with pronoun confusion.
