My back was against the wall. The grammar errors were all around me.
“I’m a developmental editor,” I said. “This grammar stuff is kicking me in the tender bits.”
“Fear not, Corey-the-human,” a voice sounded through the darkness. “The Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom is here.”
In a sick-ass flash of power and insight, Thomas, the mercenary copy editor, hacked the manuscript to shreds.
All was right in the world again.
More of an update than an informative post today, but I have some how-to posts coming. I’ll be starting a new series tackling point of view, as this is the most common issue I seem to deal with in my editing work (also the item most people ask me about). Until we cross quills again, keep reading, keep writing, and as always—stay sharp!
