How to Find a Great Editor, Which Every Writer Needs

Great read. There was an interesting passage in the book “The Name of the Wind”, by Patrick Rothfuss, where the main character (no spoilers) has a mental exercise of having one-half of his mind hide something in an imaginary labyrinth. Then, he would have the other half try and find it. He was able to do it so well that sometimes, he couldn’t find where he hid the object, even though it was all in his mind. This too, is what a writer should do when editing. You look at your work as a stranger, and in the process you will find things that the writer in you couldn’t find, because they were simply looking elsewhere.
