    I just finished watching the movie Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, which had a quote ".. if you will forgive the grammatical inadequacies of that sentenceā€ which made me think of this thread. I just liked the tone of it. I live that phrase.

    I do not bite either.. Please edit away.. Lord knows I need all the editing I can get!!! After the 10th time I rewrite a paragraph, I reread it about 100 times then rewrite it again LOL, I finally post it, only to find many mistakes in it.. I would welcome any editing and any constructive criticism. :p

    A second pair of eyes is a wonderful thing in writing.

    Sadly, I actually enjoy thinking about verb tenses. Pity me. ;)

    Several have expressed a desire for editing here... if you would like, send it to me by PM or post it on the Round Table. Happy to look at things before you post them here.

    Yes, by all means have someone else look at it because it only gets better with different eyes!
