I saw this tweet today and had to laugh:
Active voice: I love your blog
Passive voice: Your blog is loved
Passive-aggressive voice: I love how you have time to write a blog

I’ve neglected my blog because I’ve been too busy working to write about work.
Things should ease up by mid-May, although I had been saying that April was going to be the end of the blazing streak. I hope to find time to write about my trip to Portland, Oregon for the 20th Annual American Copy Editors Society (ACES) conference, and the very timely book about income inequality I recently edited for a fellow from NYC.
I’m a native New Yorker, so I enjoyed using the project as an excuse to visit the city when the author and I reviewed the first round of edits, page by printed page, in person. I live in Vermont now, and perhaps I can get the book into Bernie Sanders’s hands, although that would surely be preaching to the choir.
I’m presently nearing completion of a lengthy technical proofread, to be immediately followed by a lengthy technical copyedit with a sprinkle of grant editing for UVM for good measure. Hope to see you back here in late-May.
