I have posted an essay on my blog called What Editors Do.

You can read and comment here:

At 1,000 words for part 1, I thought it too long for a forum post so I used the link.

I had a look of your blog and found an interesting essay. This line is indeed true "For the editor does not write. She edits. The writer writes. " Just like the difference of a content writer from a copywriter.

This may be redundant since I put it in the comments for that post as well, but I just posted a response that's more specific to copy editors and mid-list/small press titles.
