    Episode 54: When Editors Chat, with Patricia D. Eddy

    in Writing

    Emotions...and editing. Not always what we think about when we jump into the revision process. Patricia Eddy and I both experience the highs and lows of emotions as editors and authors. We talk about how to frame the experience, why there's nothing wrong with you, and how to mitigate your response if you're someone who struggles when receiving critique.

    We also discuss about understanding your genre, the expectations of your audience, and why tropes can be both your friend and enemy. Let us know your thoughts and experiences!
