he said he married me for my editing skillz

I helped D with his papers again this weekend. He always has me go over them to check for grammar, punctuation, and sense-making.

Here's what cracks me up. He writes like he's not a native English speaker. He's very wordy--more than I am--and phrases things awkwardly. One sentence, I was just like, "What does this even mean?" And he said, "I know, but I like the German structure." Dude wtf, why are you writing like you translated into German and then back into English? THAT'S JUST WEIRD.

I think we got it worked out. He takes about 90% of my suggestions, he says. This of course pisses me off because I want him to take 100%.





I have been working on my next chapter, too, in case anyone thought I forgot all about it. It sucks, and it's hard, but I'm working on it.

Dang, has it really been over three weeks since the last one? Yeah, I need to get cracking.
