Conversations With My Editor
Me: Just remember I’ll be in bed by 9. Exam tomorrow.
Editor: What time is it there?
Me: It’s almost 9, but I’ll be up for a bit* yet.
Me: Dammit, woman, say something. Or are you efoting?
Me: Uh, I mean editing.
Editor: I’m efoting.
Me: I think I’m keeping that word.
Overtired editing silliness.
* There was a page in the manuscript where I used the words ‘a bit’ four times. She later used it against me. Evil editor.
