Hints For Working With An Editor

eraser1Chelsey Clammer makes some good points about working with an editor. I especially like the “overcommunication” idea!

Works for me!

Here is the Editing presentation I promised the lovely participants at the Wisconsin Writers Association (WWA) conference this weekend in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. I’ve got it here as a power point and a pdf, depending on the software you have available to you.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!bow


Please feel free to contact me with any other editing or publishing questions. I enjoy helping fellow writers!

Secrets of working with an Editor

I’ve never seen information presented in a slide show. It was kind of nice to view it that way, interesting, different.

As an editor, Mark’s style guide idea is a good one, but I don’t think I’d need all the information he asks for. I do like knowing what writing rules the writer has broken so I don’t waste time correcting something the writer wanted there in the first place. I don’t know how many people told me to change cliches in my book Rosebloom. I like cliches, sometime, and I left them in there on purpose.
What he didn’t mention was telling the editor the intended audience for the book. The language and references can be quite different for a piece depending on the audience.
Thanks Mark!
