Seahawks Saturday, That’s What It Is

Today, my Seahawks are playing the Packers in the playoffs. I hope they don’t crap out and give the game away, like they are prone to do. I’d like to see us win, but I have my reservations.

While I’m watching (but mostly listening to) the game, I have to edit another technical document with lots of bad grammar, no punctuation, and really obscure words and jargony catch phrases. Yay.

Go Hawks!



  1. Do the writers make more than you do? Because that’s what kills me, making bad writers look good and then being paid a tiny portion of what they were paid.

  2. My experience has been that editors earn more than writers. Definitely that’s the case in the world of Microsoft editors. I have a friend who when to work there with only three years experience, and she makes way more than me. I have around 20 years experience writing and editing. I guess it all depends. The people writing these docs are software engineers and managers. Really smart people but they don’t have a clue about subject/verb agreements. And don’t get me started on ~ize on the end of every verb. My pet peeve is utilize. What’s wrong with good old-fashioned use?
