Dec 11: At work my focus is deteriorating. I know this because I once read a supposedly-already-edited-and-polished feature story wherein I found more than 10 misspells and a handful of SVA disagreements, not to mention loads of run-on sentences. It was funny when I saw my name at the bottom: I edited this? I submitted this as a final copy? And now it's back with client feedback and I'm chuckling because more than ever I'm now sure I'm ready to move on to another field. I still care to do my job properly. But. Shrug.
