Thoughts that have occured to me while editing a 600+ page document over the course of a week, Day 3

  • Good work music is apparently not music that I know forwards and backwards and can play in my head on cue. Nutcracker is not conducive to getting work done. Not at all.
  • That said, having music is vital if I want to stay awake.
  • CRCS is an amazing institution and the people there know how to write. I will never doubt them.
  • Nothing important ever happens on Facebook.
  • I really need to read the Mahabharata.
  • They’re taking the Hobbits to Isengard!
  • My desktop wallpaper needs to be changed again. Preferably to something with bright colors that will keep me awake.
  • Writing in Indonesian is not like writing in English and it shows. Where is the line between translating and creating? What job should an editor really play in this process?
