The Most Anal Retentive Editor On Earth

I just sent back a 19-page short story that my friend and editing partner JeebusGeek sent me. This is a story that he and I had discussed several weeks ago and I encouraged him to "write it, for cryin' out loud!" So, he handed it off to me for my once-over. Two weeks and four pages of single-spaced notes later, it's done. Nothing has been overlooked from the tiniest grammatical or punctuation error to the largest plot hole. It's all been noted, suggestions have been made. I'm tired, but I know that when all is said and done, his story will be very publishable.

I don't know which I love more, writing or editing.
