On editing

TLB6 edits are currently in progress, so I thought I’d put up some editing-themed links today.

Angela Slatter has posted a useful editing kit for writers, ‘Would You Like Editing With That?’, on her blog.

Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine’s submissions section is fascinating to read. How a magazine treats an unsolicited submission is often a mystery, but Andromeda has tried to make their process as transparent as possible:

The important thing to remember is that every other magazine goes through some variation of this process. We’re just more open about it than most.  Most magazines have longer response times than us. (Submissions FAQ, Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine)

They also have a mammoth-sized  ‘Comprehensive and Totally Universal Listing of Every Problem a Story Has Ever Had’.

And finally, some xkcd for the grammar Nazis out there.
