Or rather, the conversation she doesn’t have with her editors
Nova Weetman here puts a wonderfully positive spin on editing — you know when you’re waiting for an edit to come back and wondering what the hell you’re going to get — she reminds us about the fun of not knowing what you’re going to get.
Meanwhile, an editor (namely moi) is sitting and waiting for an author to return the manuscript with comments about she’s got it all wrong …. or is that just me huh?
I need to work on the fun part, I think. I am joking very badly here, but the fun of the responses you do get from an author is when you and the author come up with something entirely different and brilliant for the manuscript.
