Five Great Quotations about Editors

“[Editors] drive 240_F_23284271_Fx7jALr3A7NzqzlG7zGPX6ywbfHEY9Yeus nuts. We go from near-worshipful groveling when we submit to bitter cursing when they reject us.” – Ken Rand

“Editor: A person employed...whose business it is to separate the wheat from the chaff, and to see that the chaff is printed.” – Elbert Hubbard

“The road to ignorance is paved with good editors.” – George Bernard Shaw

“Editors also know that the people who are really readers want to read. They hunger to read. They will forgive a vast number of clumsinesses and scamped work of every sort if the author will delight them just enough to keep them able to continue.” – William Sloane

“Never throw up on an editor.” – Ellen Datlow

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Nashville, Tennessee, or a small town like Turkey Creek, Louisiana, I can provide that second eye.
