Why It’s So Hard to Catch Your Own Typos

9083244495_fe847438f1_zI have been busy writing and editing this week, so here is a timely post, in Wired, about why we miss typos in our own work. Typos happen all the time to me. I read something over and over, and often miss even the most obvious mistakes.

Not surprisingly the brain is to blame again, always making assumptions.

Hope it makes you feel better, especially if yours made it to print.
