Why is it that corrections of text (or anything else for that matter) always feel more ‘corrected’ when they’re done with red ink?
Green ink just wouldn’t do. Blue doesn’t ‘make a statement’ either.
Judging from the amount of red ink I’ve used while proofreading my new novel: “Flesh Machine: The Story” – I have a lot of work still ahead of me.
On second thought, given that the title of my book is “Flesh Machine” – perhaps the excess red ink has something to do with all the blood…
