Two posts on editing (in various forms)

In the past few days I’ve read two very interesting posts on different forms of editing. As I’m about to restart my studies in this area, this is rather timely for me.

First was the Angry Robot post about what the copyeditor does (by Anne Zanoni) – really interesting insight into the process.

Then Justine Larbalestier wrote a piece on what she meant by saying editors are not allowed to rewrite their authors’ books (and no, she doesn’t mean her words are precious!). Useful to see a pro author’s side of the coin.

I enjoyed both these posts, and think I’ll start collating such things as useful resources for studying!
