Some of you remember that Bethany Hensel is running a series about me and my book, and this month she asked me about editing. I believe she asked me to show a “before” and “after” editing of a paragraph of my book, so that readers could get an idea of the power of a “few word switches” and “some tightening.”
When I picked myself up from the ground, guffawing, I decided I would give her what she asked for. Here you are. PROOF BY SEDUCTION: from shuffling Austrolopithecus to modern upright man!
When I post an excerpt of PROOF on my website I will probably put this there as well. Enjoy!
