Mata Hari:
"At nineteen, and with no prospects, Margaretha, on impulse, answered a personal ad in the paper. Rudolph MacLeod was thirty-nine, almost twice her age...."
-- page 111


Umm, 39-19=20, meaning that he is over twice her age, not almost. Geez, doesn't anyone have simple math skills anymore?

Carry Nation:

"One saloon owner's wife punched her in the face."
LOL I don't blame her, this woman was obnoxious! It's one thing to believe in something and have your words heard, it's quite another to destroy because of said beliefs. Talk about inciting violence.

"Her religious fervor came from a grab bag of influences that she stitched together like a patchwork quilt."

On Anne Boleyn's trial:

"The evidence against Anne and her brother came solely from his wife, Jane. Jealous of his relationship with his sister, Jane stuck the knife in Anne's back so deep it's a wonder it didn't come out the other side."
-- page 87


Le sigh. Oh yes, do continue with the perpetual vilification of Jane Boleyn.

Lolly's Library (Dork Kettle) What, an author needs to know basic math? Pshaw! Silly faerie. :D


faeriemyst My bad. ;P But really, I'm not asking for complex algebraic expressions here, just common 2+2, 10-5 math skills. Bah!


Lolly's Library (Dork Kettle) Heck, it's amazing when a writer has a grasp of basic writing skills. Now you want to add in basic math, too? It's. Too. Much. Heads will explode! LOL


faeriemyst You're right, you're right. I'm expecting too much. And apparently from the editor as well. ;P


Lolly's Library (Dork Kettle) Glad to know you've seen the error of your ways. ;D Seriously, though, how pathetic is it that those basic skills are lacking yet only a select few actually notice? :/


faeriemyst Just you wait, I'll get you back. *low evil chuckle* Very pathetic. It's really sad when you think on it. :\


Lolly's Library (Dork Kettle) Eeeek! *quivers and quakes* Yeah... that's why I try not to think about it. :(


faeriemyst LOL Me either, it's just too sad, but it's hard to ignore when you notice those errors. :/
