Quotes About Editorial

Editorial Quotes: It's important to understand it's OK to control the subject. If most editorial stories were photographed just as they are, editors would end up throwing most in the waste basket.

Editorial Quote: You're talking about Rwanda or Bangladesh, or Cambodia, or the Philippines. They've got democracy, according to Freedom House. But have you got a civilised life to lead?

They want homes, medicine, jobs, schools.

Quotes about Editorial: I don't give you editorial control. I want to meet you. I want to interview everybody who's ever known you. I want to see your correspondence.

Editorial Quotes: For me - showing a half-finished manuscript is tricky. Just as a bird will get spooked and abandon her eggs if some outside party comes around and makes too much noise or pokes around the nest too intrusively - well, that's what it's like for me if I show work too early and I get a lot of editorial suggestions at the wrong time.

Quotes about Editorial: If you give a little credit to the concept of the artist, I think you ought to indulge excesses a bit, because that reflects the personality of the writer. Now if a joke is in bad taste or it's not funny, okay, that's awhole different thing, but how you craft a joke is really what the writer's job is, and I don't think that technique should be subject to any editorial constraints.

Quote about Editorial: I don't watch the nightly newscasts on TV . . . nor do I watch the endless hours of people giving their opinion about things. I don't read the editorial pages; I don't read the columnists. It can be a frustrating experience to pay attention to somebody's false opinion.

Editorial Quotes: There's also a way that you have of being precise but also allusive, that works well for me - it's something about the open-hearted way you frame your queries.

This takes a lot of editorial wisdom and confidence - to know just how to get the writer to take that extra chance.
