Default Quick Change Nerilka

In paragraph 1 of chapter 3; Nerilka dresses on work tunic and trousers.

Two busy pages later she picks up her skirts to run.

Nicely caught Peter.

Okay: Para 1: Chapter 3 (page 32 in my 1987 Corgi edition)

"I left my door open as I hastily donned a work tunic and trousers and belted on the heavy ring of Hold keys."

She then visits the Healer hall and has a conversation with Desdra. Followed by ....

Page 34 (I make it Para 10):

"What could a dragon be doing at Fort Hold -- now? I picked up my skirts and ran back to the Hall."

That type of error's easy to make even if you haven't written lots of novels... just stop writing for a few days and come back without checking what you wrote before...

Many is the time I discovered that UK and US editions are different and don't carry the same mistakes/errors, Maw.
