Understanding authors

In a workshop that I had attended on editing, an interesting point came up. Why are writers so touchy about their copy? I think for most writers, their writing is perfect. It is their voice and the editor wants to change it beyond recognition.

Now, how do we convince them that that’s not what we want to do. We want to help them make their voice clearer and better, so they can reach a wider audience.

Some points to keep in mind:

In my next post, we will look at what editors look for in a document.
