Being an Editor

When you haven’t had to look for a job in over a decade, you forget quite how much time it takes up. While I stomp both the online and physical streets of London’s publishing industry, and try to make money via freelance editing, Pile o’ Books is wanting of attention.

So while I gather the brain power and time to write about Salinger, here is a small scrap of a link that might be of interest as it discusses the kinds of things I do, and the thoughts which consume my mind, when I’m not tapping out this blog. This article on editing, Stet By Me: Thoughts on Editing Fiction, by Australian book editor Mandy Brett, is one of the best pieces on ‘being an editor’ that I have read in a long time.
