Hi, Maureen; quite a lot of us "get it" I think. I'm a good structural and
style editor for other people (I do ms assessing in my "spare" time), but I
can't rely on doing it for myself. I get the cold grue when a publisher says
s/he's planning to publish "as is". We need our editors to protect us from
ourselves.
