Stephen King wrote, "To write is human, to edit is divine."
As I begin editing my third manuscript I find the editing part not only fun, but highly necessary. Every writer has a vision how their book will be understood by readers, and yet our vision is often far from the mark. I hear editors say, “It’s necessary for writers to step back and let us do our work in order for the book to be ready for publication. Without proper editing things like book flow, punctuation, repetition, in-depth descriptions of characters and story line will be missed.”
I could not agree more. I am as proud of my work as any writer is, but without editors our books would not be half as enjoyable as readers deserve them to be. I take my hat off to those men and women who make our books that much better. Here’s to another good year of books to write and read.
