STOP AND THINK – No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else’s draft. (H. G. Wells, 19th & 20th century English writer)
That’s the curse of being a writer or editor. You just can’t look at written text (or listen to a speech) without recognizing grammatical errors or thinking of better ways to express a thought. When that becomes your everyday habit, it’s difficult to read or hear people speak without criticizing. How much better to “hear” the intended message without critiquing it!
