How To Be An Editor













1. Hang on to writer’s work for months and months. Do editor stuff that is a mystery to writers.

2. When it is time to contact author, allow a good 48 hours or less for turn-around.  Maybe 72 if you’re sending proofs after working hours on a Friday.

In seriousness, I have worked with some very nice folks on a few small-ish projects and I am sure they are really really busy and really really pressed for time but man oh man, this is a hurry up & wait business.  And I’m not joking about the Friday night delivery.  Sheesh!
