  • Thu, 16:43: Just hit page 300 of this #amediting pass. Time to break for #exercise, I think.
  • Thu, 18:01: Well, that didn't go so hot. Usually I can bike off 250 calories in one go. Today, not so much. No idea why. :/
  • Thu, 19:02: Racial slurs = bad unless it's a gay liberal using one about a black conservative & all conservatives should shut up b/c Clive Bundy. Right.
  • Thu, 19:10: ...pornbots are favoriting my pinned Tweet. Yay, I guess?
  • Thu, 21:15: 100 pages left in this #amediting pass. Then I chapter the thing properly and go through it for repeated words I've noticed. Nearly done...
  • Thu, 21:33: Dear LiveJournal: You are on crack. "We noticed you haven't logged on in awhile." I'm logged on RIGHT NOW. WTF.
  • Thu, 21:38: That email would make more sense if they sent it to an RP account I HAVEN'T actually used in awhile instead of the one I login to EVERY DAY.
  • Fri, 11:27: Oh my GOD I hate this SCENE. #amediting Inner thoughts, what are those. Emotions? We don't need no steenking emotions! GAH.

Dear "Editors" on Twitter trying to drum up business:

Scrolling through the #amediting hashtag and spamming your "services" to random strangers is annoying. It smacks of desperation. Also, if you can't use "you're" correctly, it does not give me great confidence in your editing ability. If you argue that you couldn't fit the extra two characters in because of the 140-character limit, then that, too, brings your abilities into question, because I looked at that tweet for all of ten seconds and figured out how to do it.

And then telling me that you can have a 24-48-hour turnaround on an entire 100,000-word novel makes me side-eye you real hard. FFS, this is my own damn novel, and I can't turn it around that fast with any degree of usefulness at this point.

Methinks there's a reason you need to poke the poor people on Twitter for business rather than having people beating down your door.

This irritated entry brought to you by this exchange.

Addendum:
Dear LJ,
It would be super useful if you'd fix the "preview entry" glitch that's been going on for about as long as whatever you did when you broke LJ Login, so I could check my html properly before posting.

No love,
Me
