Editors Opinions.

I just discovered this amazing thing. Editors at Carina press pass along their comments on the slush pile to @angelajames.  Angela posts them anonymously on twitter at #editreport ( I don't tweet so hopefully that makes sense).  She also posts them on a website here. That link will take you to the December report.

This was amazing.  Reading these thoughts was enlightening and terrifying.  I HIGHLY recommend checking it out just to see how editors react.  And yes there are good examples at the end.  I know there are a few things I'll be checking my manuscript for now.

  2. It was scary at first as I wondered if I did each thing, but then, after I stopped hyperventilating, I could see the things that I didn't have to worry about and some that I may need to check for. I think the benefits outweigh the cons.
