Standing On Top of Your Manuscript

In my editing life, I’ve been using track changes a lot. I’m all for it.

Jilly Cooper is my universal panacea – whenever the sky looks like it’s falling in, I duck into one of her novels and shelter there for a while (rather than bolt off to tell the King like Henny Penny – the flight or fight instinct is not strong in me – I’m all about the hiding). 632 more words
