Mistakes and miscommunications.
I have to say, I found out today how easy it is for a mistake to cause miscommunication. I put my hands up, and freely admit the mistake was mine. Yes! Even an author, who should be good with words, made a mistake.
Now you all know I've said in the past, that I've been getting Angels Blood re-edited, and I have been. The mistke I made, was not saying who by, and that's what caused the miscommunication. You see, the special lady that was doing it for me, thought that I meant I was getting it done somewhere else, and quite rightly stopped half way through. It was only when she messged me and said about it, that I realised I had made a mistake.
I would never have consciously made her feel that I didn't value her help, and can only hope she accepts my hnd on heart apology.
We have spoken about it, and, gracious lady that she is, accepted my apology, and is willing to finish editing for me. But I didn't feel it fair not to apologise as publicly as I stated the edit was being done, as she deserves the acknowledgement I denied her until now.
So thank you @Bluebirdbrige, for continuing to edit Angels Blood for me, and I hope you'll accept my apologies once again for being so thoughtless.
Please remember how easy it is to make a mistake that can lead to a miscommuniction, and all it takes to avoid it is a little extra thought. A little extra thought that goes a long way, as I have found out.
Well take care guys,
All the best,
FYI. You can follow @Bluebirdbrige on twitter, she's a really nice lady, you'll love her :).
