This one is such a helpful tool for me!
I am reviewing the copyedited manuscript of my upcoming book, and I remember how much I bristled during that process for my previous books, wanting to justify my choices and argue with the copyeditor’s changes.
This time around, it’s smooth sailing! I am going into it with the thought “How fortunate am I to have the support of a professional who sifts through the manuscript and makes it perfect!”
I am able to defer to her notes and changes, and feel like we are cooperating rather than arguing.
Needless to say, I am enjoying myself a lot more. 🙂
