How will you celebrate National Be Kind to Editors and Writers Month?

Didn’t know September was National Be Kind to Editors and Writers Month? Well, read here for more information and then send a card or note to your favorite editor or writer — you might want to start with our Princeton Global Science editors here.

Further suggestions from Angela Russell:

Sharpen all the pencils in the house. A writer needs one!

Stay off the computer. A writer might have an epiphany just as you are winning your game of Solitaire.

Do not interrupt your loved one while they are working. I have lost many ideas this way.

Do not let your toddler use the computer paper as a doodle pad. What if I have an award-winning novel at my fingertips? There will not be one sheet of paper to print it on.

If your writer/editor loved one is Blonde, take the initiative to clean the white-out off of the computer screen.

Make plenty of coffee; everyone knows that writers always wait until the last minute to finish a project. They will be up until 3 a.m. trying to decide if they should use “media is” or “media are”.

Offer to baby-sit for the writer/editor in your life. They might not get any work done, but the kids will be out of their hair for a while!
