Dreamcatchers and Decisions

I’m hella superstitious.

I’m not talking about getting bad luck from walking under a ladder or breaking a mirror.

I’m spiritual superstitious.

I don’t go into random graveyards where none of my relatives are buried. (No one’s there to protect me from evil.)

I don’t let people play with Ouija boards in my home. (Take the demons back to your home.)

I don’t walk past a murder of crows. (They’re a sign evil is near. But I have a raven tattoo. Because Edgar Allan Poe.)

I’m complicated.

And I’m highly suspicious — my previous lives must have been as unusual as my current life.

Because of that, I’m always asking questions.

Most recently, I asked myself why the Hell I thought it would be a good idea to make my niece and nephew dreamcatchers.

I had a few when I was growing up. They were protection from bad dreams — catching the bad dreams, trapping them in the webbing, and destroying them with the morning sunlight. I imagine just like how the sun burns vampires alive. (Like I said, I’m complicated.)

So I thought it would be fun to make 2 and give them to the kids.

Dudes & dudettes, I was hella wrong.

It took me 3 hours to make ONE.

I had to wrap 5 yards of suede around a 5-inch metal hoop.

I had to weave 2 yards of embroidery floss in and out of the suede-covered hoop to create the webbing.

I had to add what felt like 397 embellishments, too — beads, charms, ribbon & feathers.

But the worst part? The feathers.

I bought naturally-sourced feathers that were haphazardly crammed in a plastic bag from a craft store. (I don’t even want to think about where those feathers were sourced from.)

Dear sweet baby Jesus… every time I pulled a feather out of the bag, 2 pounds of down exploded all over my dining room. It was like I had a pillow fight with… I dunno, with a machete.

The dreamcatchers are cute though. And I know my niece & nephew will love them.

Not only do I love asking life-altering questions, but also I love answering them.

I was recently asked…

“I’ve never heard of this type of course before — How do I know if Copy Edit School is right for me?”

If you’ve never heard of it before or don’t really know what it is…

It’s not your fault.

In fact, copy editing itself is one of the best-kept secrets of professional publishing houses and marketing agencies.

They employ highly skilled people dedicated to this craft…

Who make sure each piece they publish is *perfect* — not just for typos… that’s almost too easy.

They make sure it’s clear and concise and compelling.

That’s the difference between an obviously self-published pile of rubbish…

And something with extra pull and polish that’s irresistible to readers.

That’s why copy editing is such a sought-after skill for people in the know.

A copy editor can turn something “OK” into a revenue-generating masterpiece.

And THAT is why copy editing is so valuable.

Most of these pro-level copy editors are bound by iron-clad non-disclosure agreements…

They are legally barred from divulging the secrets of this sought-after skill.

But not me.

I know all the tricks. I know all the secrets. And I want to share them with you in Copy Edit School so you can improve your copywriting in just 4 weeks.
