Lesser Known Editing Symbols

I have an amazing copyeditor. I’m just finishing up working through all the (many, many) edits she had for me. All I can say is she may have used some of these symbols for me … especially the third one. 🙂 Oh, and not the adverb one. Never the adverb one.

  • I had a chuckle reading this, but also it’s so true, isn’t it. Writing is such an exacting profession. Thanks for sharing this.

    • Yes, it is! There’s so much more to telling a story than … just telling the story. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  • That’s awesome. I like the “characters should fight”. That should also be an emoji, methinks.

    • The editing emojis! Oh my goodness, those would be awesome! We should find a way to make that happen…
