Self-editing is not real editing. I'm sure that every writer sends
work to the editor thinking it is perfect. Yet an editor almost always
something to change. If a group does not have an editor, they can at
least do peer editing. Every writing group I have worked with has
employed one or more editors. In most companies I know, editors earn
the same or more than writers.
