Critique is fine and good and appreciated. Editors are great — I have been an editor in the past, and I think I’m great, and the editor who read this particular piece, for instance, is really really cool! Thanks for reading! I appreciate!

What I don’t appreciate is being called showoffy, greedy and insecure. I think my body of work is not big enough to lend itself to the psychological evaluation you have provided above. Right? When you are editing someone’s work, especially someone with whom you do not have a relationship and rapport, best not to get too personal. Don’t you agree?

Like what you read? Give kelly catchpole a round of applause.
