I love edits!

When I first joined the government a long time ago, one of my first jobs was to write minutes for my boss.

How I hated that. He’d give me little direction, then come back with massive edits. I was convinced, as I imagine so many are, that it really would have been more efficient for him to do it all himself. Oh, those edits were tiresome.

But I just realised that I now love edits. I love working on a piece of writing and having someone else’s input – watching it improve every time and become both more solid and elegant. First with Ryan for my article in Boxes and Arrows last year, then with James on articles for work, and now with Todd Warfel on a new B&A article. It really is an amazing process.
