The Best Potato Salad ...

According to Laura, this man makes the most amazing potato salad and she wrote up the recipe here .

I went wandering and visited this man and laughed (serious as most of it is) over his list of Five Reasons Why You Need an Editor:
*Your reputation is on the line.
*Even the best writer needs an editor. And the best editor needs another editor.
*Publishers won’t give you a reason why your manuscript was rejected. An editor will.
*E-publishing has no safety net to prevent embarrassment.
*Your mother thinks that everything you do is wonderful.

I worked for years as an editor and let me tell you, I desperately NEED an editor now.

I'm horrified by the typos and misspellings that roost in my blog entries because I can't "see" my own work clearly.

I know what you mean ... I write, I read straight away, I post, I read, I correct ... sigh, I miss some, find them hours later, am mortified.
