A Day in the Life of an Editor

That day when you grab a cup of cereal in the morning and take it to your computer to eat it while engrossed in commas and dashes.

Then at 2:30 pm you drag yourself off the couch to grab a peanut butter sandwich before returning to the gerund sentences and verb tense agreements.

By the evening, you decide that it’s only the fact that you had company at your house for supper that keeps you healthy and sane.

At 1:15 am, you finally shut the computer, tear yourself away from character analysis and sentence structure, and try to get some sleep, not wanting to know how many hours you put in today.

Editing is amazing.
