Moreover, people have rained on my writerly parade. I followed my plan this morning of starting to rework a projected article on the basis of some peer-reviews. Mostly helpful suggestions, but one so bitterly dismissive I now feel as if I’ve been standing in the rain for hours! What happened to politeness? When I peer-review or privately edit people’s work, I always emphasise the good and suggest improvements. I don’t feel I have the right to perch on high and make snide remarks.
End of today’s complaint. Must go and cuddle the cat.
