Editors who write

December 29, 2003

Testy Copy Editors discuss writing and reporting on the side. Seems obvious but people make me wonder sometimes: Everybody who gets paid to change other people’s writing should be doing some writing of their own, preferably for an audience. (File under: another reason why all you lurkers out there oughta be blogging. The more you write, the more you identify with other people who write, and the better chance you have to make constructive changes to their copy vs. reflexive responses to your pet peeves.)
