We're nearing the home stretch for submissions for the Electric Spec fall 2007 issue--but keep 'em coming. I have been reading, reading, reading, and since we cannot give personal critiques to our excellent writers I thought I'd try to blog more about what I think as an editor....
Yes, I know, being in my mind does sound a little scary. :)
Up first is: grammar. I am quite forgiving of grammar mistakes (which you know if you're reading this). However, if there is a grammar mistake and/or misspelled word in EVERY sentence or almost every sentence, I get grumpy. And frankly, when I'm grumpy it is difficult for me to enjoy a story.
Ha, ha. Of course, I mean "Please proofread!" :)
