Re. the Write-a-Thon: I remember this whole "editing" thing from my Ph.D. thesis. It's all: goodbye, unnecessary adverb! So long, slightly amusing but superfluous character description! Farewell, awkwardly phrased sentence that I used to think I needed! And all the time, you're thinking: what if I actually did need that? What if that adverb added flavour? Am I blandifying my text? Have I removed an essential clue to my protagonist's personality? Can onereally use the word "probably" too many times?

Incidentally, happy birthday, Canada.
