Hey, who put this amazing manuscript on my desk?

So I'm working on a story I submitted to Vagabondage Press. My project editor has sent the thing back with a few corrections, some notes, etc. I'm reading through it and thinking to myself "Wow, I really like what they did here. This phrase here really put some life into this scene. Huh, hey, that's a clever description."

And then it dawns on me that all of said editor's changes were either in red text or highlighted. I was being wowed by my own work. Apparently I'm an arrogant bastard.

It also turns out that my grasp of commas and semicolons is horrific, which I already figured but have been completely incapable of fixing over the past couple of years. Screw you punctuation!
