Wednesday links: The difference between writing and editing

I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.

I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few.

Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.

1. Why writing and editing are not the same, from Dystel and Goderich Literary Management: Writing and editing are both important elements of the development process of a novel. But, contrary to what a lot of people believe, being good at one doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be good at the other. Excerpt: “Many intern applicants have told me that they want to go into publishing because they want to be writers. They, like most, believe that writing and editing go hand in hand.”

  1. Huh, I’d never thought about there being a difference between the two, but it makes sense. Thanks for posting!

    1. I hadn’t thought about it much, either. But once this post pointed out the differences, I realized that I had noticed them and it just hadn’t clicked. And I’m glad you liked the link!
