The Power of Positive Editing

It's amazing how a few positive comments can make your day.  A edited draft can be covered in red ink from cover to cover and a few positive comments on your writing style or the way you worded a few paragraphs make all the difference.  Even just an underlined phrase with the word "Nice" written next to it is all it take to give you that pleased little smile and satisfied feeling.  It's amazing how much power is in the editors pen, there is certainly truth to that old saying about the pen and the sword.
