In the course of editing my manuscript in the past few days I have looked up:
the definition of a vector
when Jupiter is visible
obscure details about whaling
the color of pokeweed (I thought it was red, but of course it was purple; all hail the beta reader.)
the kind of trees in a particular California garden
dates for Historical Character (a thousand times)
the size of a 60-year-old telescope (I deleted the size because I couldn’t be sure it was the right telescope; Wikipedia fail)
a more formal word than “ballsy”; has chutzpah? hubris?
What do you need to know?
