Today was Print Proof Day at the magazine I work at, when our printer sends us giant pieces of paper with 8 pages of the magazine on each piece, and we proof it to make sure we say Porsches and not Porches.
Left to right: our Art Director, Managing Editor, and me.
This was taken a couple months ago, but it was the same deal today.
I figure it's cool to post this because we've already posted it on our Facebook page.
It is my favourite of days. I feel way more A Part Of It All than when I'm answering the phones and making bank deposits (though I understand those things are important, too). And today, today was exceptionally good. Today's a landmark day, folks. A day that'll stick out in memory even when I have someone answering the phones for me.
Because they're letting me write things now! It's a little thing, a one-pager (one-paragrapher, in fact), but it's a thing I write! With, of course, a great deal of help from our benevolent Managing Editor. And it wasn't even the piece itself that got me so excited — it was the Table of Contents. I'm in the Table of Contents! Right in there with people who are real writers!
