Mechanics for Dummies
As I sat last night happily working on the proposal, (well, sort of), I decided to describe the setting of a lovely garden on the Orthodox Church's grounds. Two pages later, I called it a night, ending right before the question is asked. The garden's description came together well, but I realized that I need the 'Mechanics for Dummies' manual. At least three times when I read over my work, I realized that I had made a 'faux-paux' in the mechanics of my prepositions.....which I corrected of course. Now I'm going with the excuse that I was tired ( I did write this late in the night), but it was quite hilarious (in a rather disturbing way) that I pride myself on being an excellent communicator within the English language, yet made such idiotic errors. Well, they say we all need a good dose of humility, right?
