Something You Should Not to Say to Your Author Wife...Ever

The Husband is back in school, working toward a business degree. It's been "awhile" since he matriculated, and some of his skills, and the timing in the execution of said skills, are a tad bit.....rusty. In spite of this, he's pulling a 4.0 (Yay, TH!), but he also spends a lot of time editing and revising. I do the final QA....just to be on the safe side.

He wrote a couple of short (less than two pages) essays today for a class, which I happily proofed. He did a little more revising before sending them off into cyberspace, while I did some reading. He called me back into the office/den and said.......drumroll, please.....

"Whew, Hon, writing is a lot like work."

No shit, Sherlock!

P.S.  I'm incredibly proud of TH. Truly.

    Yes. Talk about stating the obvious. Writing is a lot of work. Over half of it is rewriting. And that is quite a GPA. Can't do much better.

  2. He is doing an awesome job! Thank you. Yes, rewriting is crucial. I had the hardest time convincing my (former) students of that. :-/

    Haha! I love any situation I can break out those 4 little words: "I told you so" :) (and also congrats to him for getting back in the classroom! That's awesome!)

  4. This made me smile, big time. Enjoy the new-found appreciation!

  5. Writing is just one FORM of work - nothing SEPARATE.

  6. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. True! Thanks for reading, Ariel.


Yes! I've been there, Claire!
