Maybe it's a coincidence but in the last week I've had my work rewritten by a couple of editors.
I've been writing for publication since the early 1990s. I have taken advice from a few editors. More often than not there are more pressing matters for an editor than changing the sequence of a sentence.
In my own editing I've learned that personal style needs to be flexible. One picks their battle with another writer.
As I wrote to one editor, it's interesting to learn what catches the eye. Which parts of sequence of words suggests a gap in meaning.
For me there have been two different edits to my work that have underlined details.
review of Basin. I added a paragraph but the editor added words to it to cover more narrative ground.
ABC Open, who also wanted a bit more detail but added an ellipsis to my text. This echoes my earlier observation about personal style because I loathe seeing ellipses used unless they're showing text has been omitted from a quotation.
So, in the case of the former, I've accepted the shortcoming in my review, but; in the latter example, I've requested the editor undo their changes.
