Rain before waking, toastie and editing decisions.

1. Those minutes between waking to the sound of heavy rain and remembering that there is a day ahead.

2. To show your child the joys of a banana and chocolate toastie.

3. When I'm reading aloud to the children I experience the effects of other people's editing decisions as a reader in an immediate, practical way. These experiences -- good and bad -- make me more confident in asking for change and being that editor, even when it makes more work for people downstream from me, and even when there is a risk of introducing errors.
