Even Editors Need Editors

I was so excited to launch my new website that I stayed up late last night to compose a launch email to all my clients and colleagues — which went out promptly at 6 a.m. this morning with two typos. The irony is not lost on me: I am an editor, promoting my new editing services with bad editing. Proof, if ever there was proof, that even the best editors need an editor (or, at least, a lock on their computer that prevents them from composing launch emails in the wee hours of the morning).

    We’ve ALL done this at least once. Love that you’re owning up to it in such a public way! (And I love the new site, too!)

    Thanks, Sarah! Not my finest moment, but yes: I’m more than willing to confess my sins! Heheheh.
