The Canvas of My Life

Crochet VISUAL Quick TipsTrack-changes is the canvas of my life.

No kidding.

Words I need to communicate come out in underlined dark green, to mingle with the copy editor’s pink, our editor’s red, and the occasional yellow highlight. And now that I’m working on the magazine, track changes has become a part of my weekly, if not daily, workflow.

Track changes is wonderful.

And in a funny twist, the very book I’m working on (with Cecily, of course) is now up for pre-order on Amazon.

I don’t. That rotten little bastard of a function failed HARDCORE on me this weekend and now I have to compare two different versions of a book manuscript side by side in order to make sure to get all the editor’s decisions on me vs. tech editor vs. copyeditor’s various questions.

Not that I am bitter or anything. Ha!

I think “track changes” does not like being passed among multiple computers, I really don’t — especially when going twixt Mac and PCs…

So I will come home from my parents’ house tomorrow, chock full of holiday yummies, and sit down to some track-changes-caused tedium. Double words all over the place — ugh. Everywhere the copyeditor changed case on a word, it’s now double. Likelike thisThis. GRRR. Hulk smash!
