Now, have I sent manuscripts to Critique Partners (CP's), Beta Readers (betas), agents, publishers, and editors with typos? Of course I have. Have I posted things on my blog or facebook or twitter with spelling or grammar errors? Guilty as charged.
Having gone through the editing process, I was shocked at the typos I found in my own work after having gone over it and over it, not with just my eyes, but with others looking at it, too!
Typos are going to happen. It's inevitable. But, when I'm reading for enjoyment, and there are multiple spelling/grammar/word missing/wrong word used issues, I have a hard time not being pulled out of the story.
So, I guess what I'm saying is, when you're looking over your work look carefully. Your readers will be thankful for the extra time and attention!
