If my life were a novel whose chapters laid bare all of my thoughts and deeds, I know that it wouldn't be a best seller, nor would it be the easiest read. I know every writer needs an editor, but that doesn't mean it should be you, so I'm taking back the pens you stole from me - the red one and the black one too! Now, my manuscript's filled with corrections that I don't recall asking you for, and all this red ink has left me unable to distinguish my writing from yours. Just because I let you read it doesn't mean that I plan to let you write it too. I've spent so much time reading your edits that I struggle to write something new, and I spend yet more time second-guessing all my words when I finally do. I may never write the perfect novel, but you can bet every word will be true, so you need to work on your own masterpiece. The author of this book ain't you. I don't care if you designed the cover and bound up every sheet of paper too!
