Editing and social media

On Tuesday, I blogged about the question, what are edits like?. Today, I have a related topic, but this one’s far more opinion-based. (As in, this is what I think, but you can and should do whatever you want because what the hell do I know?)

I received an email from a friend wanting to know the real title of Title B (see Tuesday’s blog post via the above link if you haven’t already read it) (and, no, I’m … Read More »

Big eyes and model trains
