If Your Read is Easy, Thank an Editor

Easy Reading
Nathaniel Hawthorne said, “Easy reading is damn hard writing.” I would like to go one step further by saying that writing is hard, but editing is brutal. So, every time you read something that flows smoothly and don’t leave you feeling cross-eyed or confused, thank the writer, but hug the editor.
