Editing vs. writing

People occasionally compliment me on this blog, and they almost invariably add "... especially the editing part."

That means I'm better at demonstrating my editing skills than I am talking about writing.

The thing is, though, that writing and editing are inextricably linked. You can't have one without the other, whether it's self-editing or hiring an editor.

I'm a good writer because I'm a great editor (and I say that with all modesty; I always wanted to be a great writer). If you're a good writer, I can make you better. And if you're a great writer, well, I can help you, too.

EVERYONE needs a good (or great) editor.
