Don’t fear the edit (or the editor)

 In Education, fiction, writing

…or the agent, for that matter!

If you’re new to publishing, you probably have a lot of questions about agents, editors and the editorial process when dealing with a traditional publisher. Delilah Dawson has a useful post on her blog, Whimsydark, which covers a lot of this, and may help you with any anxiety that you may be feeing right now. Perhaps the most important part, in my opinion:

…if the changes requested by an agent or editor WILL make this a book you hate, they might not be the agent or editor for you. And that’s okay.

Note: The post is in twitter thread format, which is irritating, but it’s still well worth a read.
