Do you keep track of errors in your manuscript? In light of recent allegations that Greg Mortenson fabricated parts of his memoir, it might be helpful to keep track of your own mistakes.
Author Roger C. Parker (pictured, via) encourages writers to use of error logs during the writing and editing process.
Here’s more from the blog post: “A well-designed error log contains space to enter: The page the error appears on. The type of error, spelling, factual, grammatical, etc. Discovery date, i.e. the date you learned about the error. Resolution date, i.e., the date you corrected the error. Your error log should be immediately updated when you discover an error or when you verify an error pointed out by someone else.”
