you know, there is just nothing fun about the words "fourth draft." especially when your self-proclaimed editor has a snarky little sense of humor and was drinking heavily when he read the document... i am dealing with large red slashes and comments in the margin like:
"huh? why? is this explained later?"
(x'ed out above)
"sorry, that was a 12-beer comment"
"separating two independant clauses with a comma. burn in hell!"
"stop this!" (referring to my excessive use of ellipses... doh...)
"the, punctuation! queen: strikes again..."
and the occasional: "good!"
so i can only take about a half an hour of this at a time before i drift to g|a and procrastinate... 4th draft had better equal final draft, or somebody gonna die, and my money's on me...
