Making lemonade

One of my editing clients, a few days ago, dubbed me Scissor Man when he saw how much I’d snipped from from one of his chapters. I think he was a bit miffed, actually, but I decided to take it as a compliment. So I commissioned a caricature. See what you think.

I’m not sure why it looks like my eyes are closed. Maybe the artist is in cahoots with my client and is trying to send me a subtle message that we editors snip blindly. Oh well, can’t please everybody. I just aim to please the audience.

Sure. I just haven't gotten to it yet.
