Let us now travel back in time:
Remember when you wrote on paper, and your teacher/boss/editor would mark up your work with so much red ink you'd go dizzy? "The page is bleeding" you'd say, sigh, and then gather strength to make the changes.
Recently, I marked up a manuscript and the young writer stared at me with a mix of horror and confusion. I had ruined her work with the ugly marks of a mysterious language.
Is this editing shorthand — long used by reporters and editors — now extinct? Does anyone write on paper anymore?
It's okay, you can tell me: Am I the last one out, and it's time to turn off the lights?
