I am frustrated because, although I only charge $2.00 per page for developmental editing, many writers seem to have a problem with the price and want to haggle with me about it. I'm also annoyed by the fact that many writers do not know the difference between a developmental editor, copyeditor and production editor. It seems to me that if you're serious about making it in a new industry, you should do your homework. Okay, thanks for listening to me whine (smile). Anyone have some good news to share?
