Holes

Late last night, I re-read, WB, the manuscript I submitted to my online critique group. This is the same manuscript that I was so proud of only yesterday. But looking at it again, 24 hours later, I saw holes. Not big holes, but holes none the less. Now, I know I didn't do well with 9th grade English — sentence structure, prepositional phrases, verb conjugating — but, you'd think I completely forgot about pronouns. Pronouns!— you don't even need 9th grade English to understand that using the same noun over and over and over and over and over and over and over again might soon get on folks' nerves.

No one does, brotha! Until they get in a class with a good teacher on the subject. No, grammar and proofreading aren't all that hard, mentally. You just have to learn it in a class where you have a teacher that will motivate you to keep learning. At least I did!
