Chris Jones on Twitter: “Blessed be the editors.”

My kind, generous, and excellent book editor highlighted a paragraph and wrote, “This stuff feels vague to me and not sure what you’re trying to say exactly—illustrate or sharpen.”

I then highlighted the same paragraph and hit delete.

Just to be clear, he was totally right. It was a paragraph of pure wankery.

Editors are important. Blessed be the editors.
