Writing Glitch 1048

Today’s second glitch:

Change Its to It’s.

Change the comma after today to a period. (Actually, you can just delete today — it isn’t needed — and place the period after day.)

Unless you mean to say there’s more than one sun (could be fun, right?), change suns to sun’s (contraction of sun is). If there is more than one sun, change suns it to suns are.

Change towns to town’s.

At the end, change there to they’re.

It’s a lovely day. The sun’s on fire. Your house is on fire. The town’s on fire. The only thing not on fire is the snow. You thought it’d be a nice thing to do, since it’s so cold. The townspeople appreciate it, because they’re on fire.

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.
