My poor little blog is feeling a bit neglected, but I’ve been pretty busy and my brain is apparently not in the mood to conjure up any useful and inspiring content. So here, for a bit of Friday fun, are some the blog posts I could have (had I but words enough, and time) written lately:
Working from home: editing while your seven-year-old composes a new song inexplicably called “Holders”.
The curse of a developmental editor: how becoming too attuned to pacing ruins your enjoyment of certain pop-culture events.
Troubleshooting Microsoft Word: why is it acting like a massive tit?
The control freak’s guide to organising an event with eight other people.
Starting conversations on social media – just mention cake!
Editing envy: how to cope when the characters you’re working with are living their best lives but you’ve been wearing the same jogging bottoms for four days.
Managing cash flow: getting through the month on seven pence when you know you have five outstanding invoices that are all due the day after the bills are.
Freelance health: how many biscuits are too many?
Effective blogging: start seventeen draft posts, discard ideas for twenty-three more, then end up posting nonsense like this.
