Eh, don't be petty about the spelling errors -- like I said, it's a
one-draft fic.

...if you don't want people to be "petty" about spelling errors, don't
freakin' post on the Internet. :P

 Doesn't even get run through a spell checker.  (I've heard
people call me 'lazy' for that, but I usually don't run a spell check on
something anyway until it's finished, and the fic ain't finished yet.  The
fact I was producing literally a roughly 5,000 word chapter a day at the
time (for about a month), in addition to my real job, didn't seem to
the person calling me 'lazy.').

It takes all of 10 seconds to run a spellcheck before posting a draft, and
all of 10 *minutes* to actually physically proofread your work before
dumping it into the vast sea of data.

Make whatever excuses you want for yourself, but as a writer, failure to
proofread *IS* laziness.
