Rick's previous editors have had to quit. He has eyesight difficuties, and says:

My last few editors, one for ten years, kept a list of the recommended changes. I can read the list, use find to find the spot in the document, and then I listen to it, compare notes with the suggetsted edit, and take the action I think is best.

It requires a bit more time, but my editor of ten years was an English teacher, and he devised the method that has kept me writing. This will scare off people, but when someone agrees to do it the way that works best for me, they find it isn't as time consuming as it sounds at first.

Can you be that editor?
