Let’s Talk Editing
Just today I was interviewed over at Bethany Hensel’s arts and entertainment blog, where she asked me a number of insightful questions. On the list were:
As an editor with a publishing house, you must see manuscripts of all genres and length. Can you tell us a bit about what makes a manuscript really stand out to you?
What are some writer mistakes you see over and over again in manuscripts that really can drag it down and ultimately, end up in rejection?
What advice do you have for writers who are at the editing stage of their manuscript?
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given about writing? And what’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given about editing?
I discussed my hands-down, all-time-favorite revision tool, the chief thing that’s helped me in my writing career, and some awesome ways writers can get the attention of an agent or editor.
To see my answers, head on over to the interview!
