Writing Glitch 1047

Today’s first glitch:

Fix the punctuation by changing that comma to either a semicolon or a period.

Fix the factual stuff by not posting this sort of nonsense as fact, because it isn’t. (People I know have described reading in dreams. I’ve read things in dreams. Also, the human brain isn’t as ‘this happens on one side of the brain, and that happens on the other’ as popular pseudo-science would have you believe. In fact, it’s mostly not like that.)

“Reading and dreaming are functions of different sides of the brain. This is why you can’t read in a dream.”


About Thomas Weaver

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have eight cats. I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

    I think this “fact” was popularized by an episode of Batman: The Animated Series.
