I don't fear rewrites. I hate them.

Got a stupid copy editor story? Share it here!

I got a rewrite once where the CE basically said, "I made some changes and wanted to OK them with you first." I sent it back with a "Looks good to me." response, but was thinking "Umm, you do realize rewrites go against my stats, right? Just approve the fucking thing." :?

I think the next time something like that happens, include this note:

Remember the $7k guy, and ask yourself if it really matters. The approve the fucking thing and move on.
Why? Because FUCK YOU, that's why.

I forgot to mention, I also got a rewrite once because the CE deleted one of my references by accident and needed me to put it back.

Just got another one saying what "they'd like to see" in the article... a bit more information on this and that. It's informative as is. It's a topic view, with a comprehensive overview of the title subject... and now they want some how-to steps thrown in.

meh.......

my latest is that I apparently don't know what I'm talking about event though I wrote about where I live.
CE says, "Is there any other place besides XXXX to buy this?"

No. That's why it's there. That is the place in XXXX where one would purchase XXXX. Always has, always will.
Just one of those I have to set aside for a day and look at after the anger has passed.

CEs have instructions that result in questioning any semblance of independent thinking.
And the Zombie A$$h@le CEs do it . . .yuck.

I was told to rewrite a piece that "read more like a feature article than a list." Uh, yes, duh... am I supposed to dumb down my work and earn nothing but beans my entire life? F. Them. All.
