    What authors learned from their editors…

    I loved this story. My writing craft is changing by the minute thanks to these words. If I had an editor (which I will soon) I would write a story entitled, “What this author learned from what other authors have learned from their editors.”

    Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for the link love, Steve!

    And thank you for sharing the link about what authors learned from their editors. I used to overuse “that,” “just,” and “really,” but I’ve managed to cut those. I probably still have too many “but”s. 🙂

    You’re right, “What authors learned from their editors” is a brilliant piece. Made me laugh. And take stock.

    I always look forward to news from this blog. Thanks.

    BTW, Crestock is the same quality but less expensive than iStock.
