Opening sentence to a major news story published July 2, 2017:
“A shootout erupted around 10:30pm on Sunday night in Avignon, southern France, when two gunmen opened fire on a crowd outside the Arrahma mosque leaving either people injured…”
During article read, realized “either” should have been numeral ‘eight’.

What happened to self-editing, especially for the “hook”?
If a writer, consider self-editing, several times, prior to publishing. Readers like me appreciate clean and clear type. Really do!
Either write well – with quality in mind – or eight ball the content. Your shot!
