Watch your use of toward/towards and backward/backwards. With the "s" is British; American is without the "s."
- She limped towards her bedroom door.
- I remember only one occasion when I showed anger towards a friend.
- Count backwards from ten before you speak.
This isn't what I call a serious error, but it's one of those little things that serious, skilled writers try to avoid.
In the same way is the spelling of words such as gray. The Brits use grey and Americans write gray (unless it's a surname). Except in older poems and hymns, we don't read Saviour, although they still do in the UK.
Even small things are important
if I want to become an excellent writer.
