"This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it's done. It's that easy, and that hard." -Neil Gaiman

What do I do? I’m glad you asked. I use minimum pressure to push buttons that are programmed to make letters appear on a blank text box. When I press multiple buttons, one after another, I can form words and, with the use of a large, blank rectangle that makes a blank space between letters, I can form sentences. With more buttons that have various other functions, I am able to turn those sentences into paragraphs, and slowly those paragraphs turn into chapters. Push enough buttons, and the chapters combine to form a book, which others can peruse at their leisure.

The author's comments:

I was once talking to a friend and asked them if they liked editing.  I am constantly in need of editors, because, as an author, the length of my pieces often intimidates people.  So when they asked me what exactly I did, I couldn't help but go into way more detail than was necessary.
