Behold, The Mighty Editor

I have my editor's hat on today. (It looks just like my writer's hat, only in a different color). ((No, not really, I am being facetitious. Damn, you guys, don't take everything I say so literally)).

For the past three weeks, the forty-odd (some very odd) members of the Wild Cards consortium have been submitting story proposals and pitches for the three new WC books from Tor, LOW CHICAGO and MISSISSIPPI ROLL and TEXAS HOLD 'EM. Last night at midnight was the deadline for pitches.

As usual, we have more proposals than we need. Only eight writers per book. So today is Decision Day, wherein I decide who gets to be in which book, who is out, who gets to double-dip. It is never easy. So many talented writers, so many great characters, so many fun ideas.

But that's why I get the Big Bucks as editor (that was another joke, yessir, for sure, this is a labor of looooooove).

John Sebastian said it best:

I have a whole new respect for editing
i'm now attending an Eng Comp course and it's truly a bitch to revise and edit a work and tell yourself it's good enough to hand in. I'm constantly adding and subtracting before the deadline.

George if you have time I would be honored to have a few quotes from you on some thoughts for my next assignment. It's a topic on the purpose of education. You are a successful writer and you were a very accomplished student graduating summa cum laude.

You would make an exceptional source to cite. If you could give me your feelings on these essay topics:

Why did you choose to go to school and learn? To earn job skills, good citizenship, live a fulfilling life, etc.?
