  1. I love this. If only I could have an interactive version that monitored my blood pressure while I was editing. I could make a printout of the results and show them to authors who really get under my skin, and I could say, “See this spike? The one right here? That’s because you used ‘it’s’ instead of ‘its.’ Stop it. Please. You’re killing me.” Maybe the guilt would motivate them.
