uglycousin editorial meeting

this morning the editorial staff of uglycousin met and briskly decided the fate of the latest crop of rejects. that being too easy, we also created an entirely new art form.

at one point in my life i did a little reading about editing. i remember one bit of wisdom: a good editor is one who isn't afraid to edit. an editor isn't a compiler; an editor becomes part of the process. much i read indicates to me that the world is in need of good editors.

when we write we know what we want. an editor represents audience.

what have we done this time? the issue will be out soon. in the meantime, i'll just say this: if we made uglycousin the movie, each actor would be allowed only one line and would have to wear our clothes.
