A comment about becoming a copy editor
HERE'S A COMMENT on my blog entry about being a copy editor: Pen+Ink said...
Hallelujah Tom! I have been following your blog for a while as I prepare to launch my freelance empire as an editor, proofreader and writer. Recently I have been getting cold feet due to my issues with perfectionism. "What if I make a mistake?" has been giving me sleepless nights. It was wonderful to read that you make them too. Thank you.
