I sent out a query letter to a magazine announcing my new novel. The editor actually called all the way to Hawaii and thanked me for the best typo she'd ever seen!
A couple years ago, I began taking nutritional supplements that have done wonders for my health. Even my fingernails, which normally never grew past the quick, now extend a quarter inch past my fingertips. It's a great sign that the nutritionals help in other ways.
However, my long fingernails now interfere with being able to type at warp speed. I press a key with the fingertip, or the side of my fingertip, but the nail depresses the key next to it. As a result, I must scrutinize my work for typos that never happened before. I'm tempted to cut my nails because of that one error in particular that I've probably made more than once.
Notice that on the keyboard, the "e" and "r" are next to each other. When I press the "e" I also accidently type the "r."
The editor called to say that when typing the name of my novel, River Bones," I inadvertently created a typo and wrote "River Boners."
So, how have your typos embarrassed you?
