Cover, The Artful Edit by Susan Bell


Forget about being pure. […] Purists are people who create ideas, not art. At some point, when you work with an editor, she will say you have erred, and you will have to somehow blend her insights with your own. Sometimes everyone is right, yet each with a blind spot. We need […] to maintain our authority even as we open up to an opposing point of view.
