A new one for Websters

I’m pleased to announce a new word that I just invented: editoring.

Editing, as we all know, means to edit something. But an editor does a lot more than just edit things, right? Editors – in particular magazine editors – manage freelancers, create and maintain editorial calendars, discuss layouts, plan issues, and so forth. None of this can be considered ‘editing’ really. So what is it? It’s editoring.

Please help spread this term around by using it at least twice a day in casual conversation. Thank you.

I’m pretty sure I’ll end up wildly rich and famous thanks to this contribution to the English language. But don’t worry, I’ll remember all the little people when I’m on top of the world.
