As I hope to present a unique style to the world, as I am not especially tolerant of being told I'm doing things "wrong" when that's a subjective statement related to writing style, and as I've never been published, I'd like to understand what to expect from my first publisher-required editor cycle.
How much leeway are they going to allow for me to be an original author... not just in the content of the ideas, but in how I structure the language in which it's presented?
Some example sentences attempting to illustrate my point (exhaustive listing not possible):
- It was a cold night, frigidly so.
- "That wasn't the issue at all," she said. Vehemently.
- The wind threw itself down from the mountains at us; the howl was immense, deafening.
What I really care about is what readers think, not a close-minded editor. Maybe I'm full of prejudice as well as vim and vigor. Am I off base that they will think they know best and ask me to bend to their will?
