I enjoyed completely as a story and as an erotic piece. I popped a woody while reading it and passed it along to a couple of friends.
To cut down on my “Internet Time” at work, I frequently copy the story, article, or text from the web-page and put it in MS Word so I can shut down my browser. When I pasted the text of her story into Word, it found several spelling errors. NOT A BIG DEAL.
However, since I was then horny and bored, I started fixing the typos. That lead to me rereading the story and then I kicked in to editor mode. I do a lot of editing in my work, though my own posts are screened too carefully, it is almost an instinct when I read other people’s work. And it only kicks in when I really like their work. If it’s crap I don’t consider it worth the effort, but Girl Next Door is fun to read and worth the work.
So, I got out my digital red pencil and started cutting, fixing, and re-arranging. Nothing spectacular, nothing to change the mood or tone of the story, just little suggestions that I thought might help.
Then I e-mailed it to her. I’m not even really sure who she is. She has two beautiful pictures posted on her blog but little else to give herself away.
BUT, that’s not the point.
Here is my question – How would you feel if a stranger edited your blog posting and sent it back to you?
I edited her story and offered it back to her because I am a big fan of her writing and I want her to look good. Is that an awful thing to do?
I’m not going to show you my version because it is her story. I don’t want anyone to give her a hard time, If you have something to say, please comment on this blog and not on hers.
