Note: There is some fun news at the end of this article, so stay tuned through the very end.
Have you ever wondered what sacrifices editors make in order to make sure the books you’re reading are as polished and accurate as possible?
This is not a comprehensive list at all, as I’m only speaking from my own personal experience.
Here are a few things I miss when I’m on an editing deadline.
1. FAVORITE CLOTHES
Laundry tends to pile up a bit more when I’m on deadline, because I like to stay in the editing zone instead of make the time to do a load or two of washing. So my favorite tees, jerseys, and comfiest comfy pants often end up in the bottom of a mountain of clothing to be laundered once I’m off deadline… and I end up wearing some of my least favorite things in that final week of work. Bonus! I’ve rediscovered some neat t-shirts I picked up on vacations over the years.
