How would you like to see some of the words that appear on my copyeditor's style sheet? ;) A style sheet is a running document that a copyeditor keeps to make sure certain grammar-related things are staying consistent throughout the book, and it includes a list of special words that should be spelled/hyphenated the same way each time.
Here are some of my favorites from RIOT:
- batshit crazy
- douchey; douchiest
I had to laugh as I was going through the list. ....Because I'm a professional. ;)
Plus.......................... douchey. *insert professional giggling here*
