toddler editing

One way of cutting fat from an essay pitch for a magazine is to try working on it when your toddler is sitting in your lap, banging the keyboard occasionally. Then save the file. When you open it, half of it will have been deleted. That part that's gone? You really didn't need it.
Surprisingly enough, I really didn't.

I was just thinking about your pitch and preparing to reply. Glad Lucy's doing all my work for me (and you).
