Thanks for the response. Actually, I’m pretty good at grammer, punctuation, spelling, etc. The real meat, like plot, characters, etc, I’m feeling a little bit insecure about. After having read your advice, I agree it would be a waste of money since my reasons for using one would be to help my insecurities. I’m still curious, though, has anyone out there ever used an editor and what was the experience like for you?
