Yesterday was spent doing this:
Yes, we made sushi. It is not as easy as one might imagine. But if you concentrate, take your time, pay attention to the instructions given in this excellent book, you can produce something like this:
Well, to be fair, they’re the ones my girlfriend made. Mine weren’t as pretty or, um, able to not fall apart. They were delicious.
Today has been a wee bit irritating.
Before I could make a start editing my ms as per the fabulous Anne Brooke’s
suggestions, I had to sort out the random large chunks of text that Word had decided to convert into italics. (This involved deleting the Italics Style, creating a new one, and adding every single instance manually.) No logical explanation for it at all – I can only apologise to Anne – it must have made reading it a real nuisance.
Anyway, that’s done now so I can concentrate on the actual words, rather than what they look like.
