The writer’s best friend.
The writer’s saving grace.
They take our words, those piles of thoughts and descriptions, and help us form them into the best story it can be. From grammar to word choices to story development, from cutting scenes to adding scenes, editors push writers to dig deep, to make sure our characters grow, to make sure our story is told in the best possible way. Those gifted individuals inspect every word, delve into the story line and rearrange scenes, take a scalpel to our manuscripts and help us put them back together.
Without editors writers would be lost.
Jump on Twitter today and #thankaneditor. They do so much work and deserve thanks. Here’s a fun way to do it!
I’ve worked with a few editors. I have enjoyed it every time. We become a team, working together, passing ideas back and forth, and celebrating when we get it right.
Rarely do these fabulous people get praise or acknowledgement. Editors have a huge role in the journey of the creation of a book. These talented word whisperers are a gigantic support to authors.
Go thank an editor. Tell them how awesome they are. Make them smile. To all the editors out there who work so hard…
Have a wonderful wordy day.
