Shadow of the Imaginary Editor: and then he woke up

The Imaginary Editor: It was all a dream

It’s that time of the week once more: the time when I get feedback from my imaginary editor. (For those who came in late, you can catch up here.)

Last week I decided that my imaginary editor might not be insane, after all: that he might, just possibly, be editing somebody else’s book. If that’s true, then his notes are really meant for another person… and for all I know that person may also be imaginary. So I shouldn’t take these notes too personally. Right?

In that spirit I have to say that this week’s note is really interesting.

How bad does a book have to be before “And then he woke up” is an improvement? I mean, we’re talking Eye of Argon bad, here. Manos: the Hands of Fate bad. Completely unredeemable. Atrociously, nauseatingly bad. Bad on the scale of the stars.

Whatever it is that he’s editing, I’d kind of like to read it now. Or – better yet! – make somebody else read it while I monitor the electroencephalograph and stand ready with a bucket full of ice.

Eye of Argon bad? Is that level of bad even possible to duplicate? Thank all that’s holy it was some other (imaginary) author’s (imaginary) book your imaginary editor was editing. Whew!
