One good thing about writing my own stuff here is that I, wholly, alone, am responsible for the content and appearance of what you see - when I am the contributor, every word, nuance, syntactical curiosity, semantical vagary, is mine and mine alone. Typos do occur, most I detect and correct. Ambiguities and unclarity (all right; "lack of clarity") are less likely to be remedied, but I have been known to reconsider retype and reword whole paragraphs. This "Compose" panel does not have a spell checker (not that I use anyway) but I trust only a few spelling crimes are committed here; nor does it have a thesaurus, but might be handy when my flow of words seizes as it does every sentence or three.
So whenever I open up the latest Vetrunner magazine I cross my fingers and still my beating heart as I see what the editor has made of my monthly contribution this time.
Generally the text I submit appears unchanged; but the editor ALWAYS changes the title to something else! And sometimes with cringeworthy results. (I should add that the editor is a good friend of mine).
This coming Vetrunner (August; now available on www.actvac.com.au) is no exception to the rule that SOMETHING will grate. Hahaha - page 6, "PROMINENT MEMBERS CELEBRATE BRITHDAYS". That's a good one. Page 7 "INVITIATION TO COMMENT ON ACTVAC IT". OK, I consider myself invitiated. Good things come in threes. There it is, my article. DEAR OH DEAR, where did THAT heading come from? Page 23. "COACH WHO SPECIALISING IN CONDITIONING".
It's enough to make you.... go back over all this year's posts of mine to see what little mistakes I can find in my own creations. And hurriedly fix them before anyone (else) notices.
p.s. the best is yet to come
