I sort of wish I knew about editors when I was still in high school.
Coffesion time. When I was younger I couldn't tell you the difference between a verb and a noun. still can't to tell you the truth. I know a verb is a doing word, but my teacher didn't exactly explain it in a way that I could actually understand beyond that concept. However a certain individual who I will be sure to thank profusely when I repost the works I have already written , is reteaching me the basics of the english language in a way even I can understand, probably growing grey hairs as we speak.
To any authors just starting out on this site, and about to post their first story, get an editor. It'll make you feel better when your feedback is concentrated around your plot being new and original instead of telling you need an editor, or a proof reader to correct your obvious grammatical errors.
Thanks both to those providing feedback for pointing out the obvious to me that I hadn't noticed, and those spending their valuble time editing for me, and teaching me to write a good story. Hopefully I will make their job easier in future.
