Sorry for the Typos This Week 🤦♂️
I learned a huge lesson about editing as a critical element in writing.
In the publishing world, there are writers and editors. Rarely are these the same person. Authors crafts words. Editors polish those words for readability and grammatical correctness. In my case, an editor also would need an eye for theological accuracy.
This week’s writing lesson centers on my need to create an editorial process before releasing words to the world. What if I had funds one day to hire an editor? What a dream!
Until then, I am my own editor. He has made a bunch of mistakes so far, and I have a mind to fire him. But since there is no one else in line, I’ll give him a chance to make some progress.
This is to say, I’m sorry for the typos this week. Ugh. But like all our mistakes, we either will despair over them or we’ll learn from them. As former Georgia head coach, Mark Richt, once said, “Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn.”
Good advice for all of us.
Is there an area where you are learning these days? I’d love to hear about it. I definitely can relate and will celebrate any progress you’re making. 😁
Yours, writing, learning, and hopefully making progress at editing—all by grace,
