Unlike our own, Colleen Coble, I'm not a big fan of the editing process. I do not get all excited about seeing all that red on my paper -- no more than I did when I was in the fifth grade. Yes, I know it makes the book better. No, I cannot live, nor would I publish without it. But that doesn't mean I have to like it.
Plus, the Chicago Manual of Style keeps changing, so there are constantly new rules about where a comma should be, and I don't care to keep up. Make up your MIND already! My friend and editor Nancy Toback is a tough editor. I did a screen save on page TWO Of my current manuscript and I think we can see that I have a lot of work ahead of me.
There are weeds in the field as we toil. I understand this...so I edit. But I do not have to like it. What's the one part of your job that you could do without?
