Editing Is A Team Sport

I have a saying in my department that “Editing Is A Team Sport.” Every time I send out the weekly worship folder, or our weekly eNews email or our Monthly Connections Magazine for review, I’m always surprised at who catches what. Rarely will people catch the same wrong thing. It’s not that I didn’t look carefully at it first…but most of us have seen the content so many times, we need “fresh eyes” that will see things as they really are…not as we intend them to be.

I have to admit that it is kind of perversely funny when typos happen to someone else. Pass your stuff around for others to edit before you print….and don’t let this happen to you : )
