Bloopers

Who fixes my mistakes?

For instance, after Elijah told the king “no more rain,” I let a cloud drop a cool Mediterranean shower on Obadiah. Until Jessy Alvarado, a critiquing buddy, caught it.

Although I did not let Elijah discuss helicopters or syringes, I did allow “mothballs” and “certifiable” to slip into early drafts. So embarrassing to discover that mothballs were invented in 1820. My friend Ava says these jolts cause “literary whiplash.”

I thank the Lord for friends who check the facts.

Please show me glitches.

  1. Typos hide. They think it’s a game.
  2. Implausible plot twists sneak in during the night.

And if you would be so kind as to do a serious critique of a chapter, ask and ye shall receive it in MS Word format.

So interesting. Not sure if tornadoes occur in that country. See Psalm 105 for common disasters or fire from heaven from NT.
