And of course, since I angsted over it for days, it wasn't that bad. But here is what's annoying: her main points are things that could have easily been addressed in Edit 8, 7, 6, 5, 3 or 3. Why it did not bother The Editor/Dominatrix until Edit 9 remains a mystery.
But I know this: every time you look at something and try to find something wrong, you will. Unless you have a deadline. If you have a deadline, you make damn sure that everything is addressed that needs to be addressed. Deadlines mean you do what needs to be done, and say what needs to be said the first time.
The Dominatrix needs her boss to give her a goddamn deadline. Otherwise I'm going to have to change her name to Columbo.
