I’ve Made A Huge Mistake
By Mark Askew • Issue #26 • View online
I find it hilarious that after I wrote my last newsletter, “Consistency in 2022”, I skip a newsletter. 
There isn’t a good reason. You show up. And I didn’t. My 2022 theme has crashed and burned!
I’ve resumed my copyediting coursework, and I am, at the time of you receiving this newsletter, starting my fourth week. You see, I made a wise decision to add a second copyediting class, which means I am taking two classes and working full time. It was after the first week—when the last issue of the newsletter was due—that I sat back, looking at my schedule, and utter the words of one great man: Gob Bluth.
I’ve made a huge mistake.
I truly underestimated the editing I would need to perform in both classes, along with the reading assignments and class discussions. What was I thinking? I was thinking that I wanted the classes to be over as quickly as possible. The good news is that one class completes near the end of February. 
I just have to survive until then.
In Other News
Well, there actually isn’t any other news. My Toggl timeline contains nothing but Productivity Lab and copyediting—and maybe some website updates I forgot to track ….
Don’t worry, I’ve been reading, doing yoga, watching anime, and playing video games to break away and rest the brain. Editing can be draining.

New on the Blog
Ok. I did stay up extremely late at night tweaking the theme on my blog—askmark.io. There weren’t any big changes, but I do provide an update: Editor’s Desk: Some Site Updates.
