It’s okay to be edited. Really.
That’s the subject of my guest blog for Shut Up & Write, an international organization of more than 16,000 members. I’ll share more about Shut Up & Write in a future post. Right now, the topic is being edited, a subject that brings fear into the heart of all writers.
Here’s the start of the blog and a link to the rest of it:
“This isn’t what I expected. There are the horror stories of plot changes, severe cuts, title changes, red ink splashing across the electronic page. Working with a book editor is supposed to be a soul-crushing, ego-blasting, albeit improving, experience.
Instead, it was sort of fun.”
