Sorry Editor! Writing Mistakes–#MFRWauthor Blog Challenge and Hop — 8 Comments

  1. I’m kind of the opposite of walking the dog. Sometimes my characters see things only an owl could spot because I forget to turn them around.

  2. I have a lot of the same problems, including American versus British usage. It’s so easy to let those Americanisms creep into a Regency romance. I like the “walking the dog” analogy, too. Sometimes getting your characters from one place to another is more trouble than it’s worth!

  3. Great post! Yes, it’s true with Americans and in different regions, we use different terms. That’s why I’m always writing Southern characters because I know how we talk. LOL!!!! That being said, I wrote a comedy that was very Southern especially with the dialogue so I didn’t think anyone outside the South would get it, you know. Then I got a great review from a man in England. Was such a shock.
