Flubs2Fixes Newsletter Game

The Flubs2Fixes Game

You’ve likely arrived here from my newsletter. Welcome! Look below for the newsletter date, and follow the link to the answer.

In case you’ve popped in from elsewhere on my website, the gist of this game is that I give a short writing example in my newsletter, and readers try to edit it and find all the errors, then follow a link over here to see if they found the same things I did. You’re welcome to play along.

And Mama. Mama hissed, but licked her lips, too. But what was going to happen next, Mama wondered.
