It’s a good job I don’t have a fragile ego and can hear the truth, from those I know have good intentions.
The editor I have approached to help me with my book, has now confirmed (after looking through some of my blog), I need ‘substantive editing’.
This made me laugh. It amused me.
I have always said it is ‘what’ I write about that is my strength, not ‘how’ I write.
I think he chose to soften the potential blow a bit, by confirming he only helps with work he really believes in.
Whether I can afford this level of heavy editing, is the issue. So, we will see.
