I work with an editor and am so thankful for her umbrella. She is able to see things that I'm, at times, unable to see. I appreciate her expertise. Of course, it does help that she is very gracious and tactful. :)

I post my secular pieces on Writing.com. Writers there tell me that my poem is great, rile me out for a typo or misplaced punctuation mark and recommend that I pay closer attention to detail if I ever want any of my pieces to catch an editor's eye.

All I can do is laugh. My father was an editor. I know what they're there for. So, I don't let the typos and misplaced punctuation marks get the best of me, and I don't let those folks on Writing.com get the best of me either. They're the best literary editors I've got (and they don't even know it).

Deb like "Uncompassionate People." It's in the July issue of FaithWriters. My involuntary voluntary literary editors over at Writing.com still think it needs more punctuation before an editor will look at it.

ROFL! The old pencil envy hits most people sooner or later. :wink:

Of course, moderators, site administrators and Deb P's are all so beyond that kind of thing. We got big pencils right from the start. :P I was particularly blessed. I had my pencil specially designed by the members(right down to its little sharpener). That was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me.

Love, Deb

Oh! Thank God you clarified that. I was afraid it had joined a gang, and we certainly don't need that in here. :D

Actually, in real life I am very particular when it comes to pencils and refuse to use anything but Ticonderoga. I give away al the free pencils my son gets from school. They're worthless.

And about the actual topic - editing is SO important - and the biggest thing I've learned -it's almost impossible to really edit your own work.
