We did it. Curly brought me back a very marked up book, and now we’re rolling. The copy goes back to the publisher on Monday.
Curly is a brutal proof reader. You even think about looking at a verb funny, and he sticks a Post-it on it. What was that? We’re you comma splicing? BOOM! Conjuct this, punk! WHAM! You better stick a hyphen on that modifier if you know what’s good for you! POW!
Friggin’ Post-its every where… It was brutal.
I’m a good story teller, but me and grammar have never been friends (which anybody who has scrolled through this blog could tell you). I was a Business Major. We were required to take one English class, which if I recall correctly, was called How To Write A Memo 101. But between pax and Curly, I’m pretty sure I’ve got something here that is at least borderline literate.
