And you thought I get happy with the red pen. Heh. Not to get political -- seriously, this is not the forum to debate the content of this photo -- but this is a page of one of Obama's speeches about the new health insurance law. Look at the editing. Love it! I aspire to be this meticulous.

Tip of the hat to my friend Linda, who sent me this picture and the headline photo from last week. I don't know where she's finding this stuff, but it sure is fun blog fodder.

Actually, it looks like what I did to the current WIP. Although I'm currently using a red refill in the purple pen.

I never post here, so I feel like I haven't earned the right to post... a conundrum.

I was wondering if there was any chance that you could address Taylor Taylor's question from yesterday on pen names.

Thank you for yesterday's post - very helpful.

When I looked at that pic I thought I was going to be sick.

docmon, everyone is welcome to post. Taylor Taylor's question is in the queue. We'll get to it, probably next week some time.

There is a sadistic part of me that loves editing hard copy just so I can make a piece of paper look like that. hahaha

Murphy asks the obvious:

Are your freaking crazy, girl? Love it? Huh, if you're not nuts - you must be taking happy pills. You got any extra you could spare? I could use some... ;)

Hi Leona! Are you a glutton for punishment? Post it on your blog? Geez, then all the grammar happy editing geeks (not that there are any around here) might add their .02 Well, maybe there's one...

Murphy says:

Great, you've come to the right place. Allison, have you met Jami? I do believe she's your cosmic twin. :)

Murphy :D

Yeah, and schools that use purple pens instead of red (too judgmental!) are filled with a bunch of weenies. :)

Even though my CP signed up for my, er, aggressive editing, I still feel bad for her. (Really! I do! I'm in the middle of a hack and slash on my WIP to cut my word count and it's brutal to have that much deleted.)
