Ouch. The copyeditor is just doing his or her job and is grateful for the work.

But, it’s just because we love getting the language just right and believe in our projects. That is to say, you’re cookbook will be perfection. Can’t wait to see it! Meanwhile, I’m going to try that pork bun recipe . . .

I saw your picture in another blog-looked like a celebration of Avocados. The food looked great with fun presentations!

Used to compete on the East coast (2002-2006), then moved to Michigan, and now am all alone in Illinois…

You should see some academic papers where the editing marks get their own few pages…

It would be better than my sisters calling me and correcting me over the phone. I love your blog!

Even those of us who use those skills daily get whacked in the face with the rubber chicken! I am a practicing speech pathologist and am actually dodging it now as I should be working on my therapy notes. One piece of advice, if you really get distracted by the “wiggles” and are tempted to eat the whole package of “Nutter Butter Peanut Butter cookies” (yes, I did!), try using one of those large fitness balls in place of your chair. You can wiggle and move to get the sensory system jump-started versus sitting, getting antsy, and munching! Although in your case you might want to take this advice with a grain of salt. (I wouldn’t want to distract you from munching out a great new recipe!). Good luck.

I am also a TKD fighter and pass through the Midwest frequently.

It’s nothing personal, you know. We all just want the best possible final product. All that red “ink” doesn’t necessarily mean the draft was bad, just that it could be better. Put on thicker skin and dig in.

Are you allowed to use words like that? Even on the interweb thingy?
