Anonymous said: How often do writers and editors butt heads?
A good editor is there to help the writer achieve the best version of the story and a good writer knows when it’s time to listen to good advice
But there are only so many good writers and editors so… all the time :-)
When my book comes out next month, words for pictures, available for preorder :-), the editors round table discussion will completely let you know how it really is. It’s one of the best chapters in the book

It is very normal.
the part you have to work on is the giving up part.
you will never succeed if you give up. there are so many different clichés about this but they’re all true. showing up is 90% of winning, the difference between an amateur and professional is tenacity…
don’t give up. be honest with yourself, take a good look at the work, fix it, and then get back to work.
I can tell you from experience, identifying the cheese and scraping the cheese off is sometimes the best part of the whole process and the most satisfying.
