Editing for fun and profit
Actually mostly for profit, but editing is easy if it comes naturally to you – and it can be fun. Sometimes.
So, what is normal, anyway?
A case of border-line OCD is not necessarily a bad thing – at least not for editors. I like things to be right. I find misplaced commas vaguely offensive, and non-reflecting reflexive pronouns do terrible things to my blood pressure.Â So I find it somewhat cathartic to beat recalcitrant words, phrases and sentences into submission.
Coffee helps. Actually, coffee helps with most things.
