Suzy Vadori’s Inspired Writing Episode 11 – Tips on Accepting Editor Feedback on Your Book

“I just can’t wait for my editor to point out everything that’s wrong in my book!” …said no writer, ever.

Have you ever held your breath when sending a manuscript out for edits, hoping that it would come back with a gold star on top, and no red ink? I have. In fact, when I first started writing, I saw corrections and suggestions as a sign of failure. That my writing wasn’t good enough.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Now, if I got a manuscript back from an editor who told me my writing looked great, I would be looking for a new editor, ASAP. Even though I’ve written several books already, and I’m a trained Book Coach and Editor. Because with every book I write, I push myself to make the writing stronger. To make my next book better. And there’s always something that can be improved, always another perspective to consider.

And I now know that can’t I possibly see everything that could be stronger in my own writing. I welcome feedback.

A good editor is a trusted partner in your writing process. If you’ve ever been nervous to share your writing with an editor, I made this week’s Inspired Writing episode for you – Tips for Accepting Editor Feedback. In this short video, I run through my top three ways to make the most of the feedback you get, so that your book will be the best it can be.
