OK, keep your wig on. The title was MEANT to be full of errors . . . actually, I have no idea if ‘affectively’ is wrong or not, that’s why I hire editors for my books. Here, on WWBB, I do my own editing and if unsure of the word I won’t use it. It’s that simple.
It boils down to ONE reason why a writer won’t hire an editor:
Under the umbrella of arrogance they will tell you that family or friends are good enough to edit for you or ‘editing kills unique writing’. They’ll even say that their qualifications enables them to edit properly.
Even editors need editors. Put it this way, do you check your appearance in the mirror before leaving the house? Or do you trust yourself that your breakfast isn’t stuck in your teeth or beard?
The mirror will tell you.
So will an editor.
