Attention Authors!

It is always the very best writers who seem to most appreciate the value of a good editor (and, conversely, the least gifted who tend to think editing unnecessary!). After all my years of unmixing metaphors, unmangling grammatical constructions, and polishing prose, I can assure you that even the most articulate people need an objective eye to see how their words will be construed. No writer, not even one with the very best taste, can always see what works and what doesn’t. Is this a self-serving statement? Well . . . yes. But it happens also to be true!
