Grrl, I work in reference, so I feel your pain in copyediting the bibliography.

Ugh, the pain. It is real. I’m just plain not that great at editing bibliographies, mostly because at Old Job our books often didn’t have them at all, or if they did the biblio was very short and kind of an afterthought. My job was just to make it as consistent as possible.

When I did the copyedit test for New Client, I did really well on everything except the bibliography and notes section, and the managing editor suggested I might like to brush up on the relevant parts of Chicago. So here we are.

I love when people randomly follow me because I assume they’ve just seen something I said and went “ah yes. This nerd seems particularly strange. Let’s see what else it does”

Okay. I’ve left myself four days to finish the copyedit of this terribly boring book for a new client, which means I need to KICK ASS on it. 

But seriously, it’s never good when an author describes the book as their “manifesto.”
