Cutting them down to size

Being part of the edit team on the magazine is delightful. Fine writing has been coming in since the day before yesterday. Writers who can write, writers who make you think, writing that makes you laugh - there's an inspired paragraph by Kamran Abbasi - some statistical writing, and lots else. The mails that come in are also fun. One says, "I know you asked for 600 words, but will 800 do?" One writer forgot what he was writing about. That was after I had reminded him he was writing a piece. Another's gone missing in Pakistan.

This is a change from being on the web team, where so much happens that sometimes I want to go missing.
