Editors are responsible for finding and producing books which will make a good profit for the publishing houses they work for.
Part of this job involves working with writers to polish and refine their texts in order to make them as perfect as possible.
It is not an editor’s job to rewrite an entire text in order to make it readable. Making things readable is the writer’s job.
So when people comment that they have an excellent story idea, and that’s the hardest part done as they’re going to leave all that dull stuff like writing to their editor, it makes me want to chew my own arm off.
