A good editor is important!
My wonderful editor Mallory just saved my butt.
I am going through a difficult revision—one that requires not so much word polishing—the words are all there but I need to re-structure the narrative arc. So Mallory wrote a very brief outline of how I might re-order such things. A new sequence, so to speak. I think it’s brilliant. Told her she was a genius and she wrote back that she is not a genius saying, “I am the person who comes in to fold the sweaters and install new drawers in the closet of your mind.” My mind needs a lot of tidying up frequently.
