If you follow this blog on a regular basis, you already know that I’m not a very good proofreader. Spell check can only help so much… and most of the time, my brain is thinking (and editing) much faster than I can type so I screw up on grammar, punctuation and all sorts of other little irritating things in my writing all the time. (I’m even worse on Facebook.) Sometimes I catch these and sometimes I don’t. For the blog, I’m on my own, but fortunately, when I do something in print, I try very hard to have Leroy look it over for me to catch something I’ve missed.
I love to play around pictures and simple desk top publishing so having the opportunity to publish the weekly football newsletter this year has been a lot of fun despite the time it takes. One thing that I dread is all of the typos and mistakes I will find after I’ve already ordered 100, double sided, full color copies. I never seem to catch it before it’s sent.
Thank goodness I have Leroy to edit and proof for me. (When he has the time.) He’s good at picking out pictures too. I usually choose pictures based on color, lighting and focus and Leroy chooses pictures showing successful plays, positions and effort. I’m worried about composition, and he worried about subject. We make a good team. (In more ways than one.) I’m really glad that he’s here to help.
