Editing is about revision, doing everything that needs to be done to make something work to whatever ends you’re after, all in dialog with you along the way. An editor is someone that helps you write something while you maintain complete control of how it turns out.
When you have a thesis that’s in need of saving, you need an editor. When your business plan is in shambles, you need an editor. When you have an ad that’s not at all persuasive, you need an editor. When you have a bunch of scattered ideas that don’t quite add up to an article despite your deadline looming, you need an editor. When you speak English more in theory than practice, you need an editor.
No matter what state the original shows up in — after editing — the end results are clear, compelling, and concise.
