My copyediting experience

I, like Anne, just finished going over a copyedited manuscript. Unlike Anne, it didn’t take me six weeks, and I think the copyeditor did a fairly decent job. Either that or I’m just a worse copyeditor than my copyeditor. Also, I’m certain my book is much shorter, and much simpler than Anne’s.

Also unlike Anne, I don’t think Michael Bérubé will comment on my blog, pampered superstar that he is isn’t. (Yes, Michael, you may consider that a challenge!)

  1. And just this morning, I made sure that my ms. spells Owen Gleiberman’s name correctly. Well, that’s not exactly true — I have a team of graduate students checking the spelling of proper names, and another team of research assistants on punctuation detail. That’s what being pampered is all about!

  2. I think the copyeditor did a fairly decent job.

    Well, done “Michael,” if that’s indeed who you really are. You’ve certainly done an impressive job duplicating the professor’s style. I’m convinced you’re actually a spambot residing in a mid-sized Chinese Internet cafe. The real Michael Bérubé would never have omitted the accents above the e’s.

    木地板, on the other hand, brings up a remarkable and cogent point. Such insight is rarely seen on this blog. I’m strangely tempted to link to your web site over and over again.

  4. Best online copyediting available here. Special for you, one day only, very nice.

    Oh, nice try, “Michael,” but you’ll never succeed in imitating 木地板’s subtle, minimalist style.
