D = Developmental Editors Want to Talk to You
Short & Sweet Reasons Why You Need an Editor
So without further ado . . .
Developmental editors love to talk about your stories. Really! If this doesn't give you an ego boost, I don't know what will.
No more searching for random cocktail parties to attend, hoping for the opportunity to discuss your latest WIP. (That's "work in progress" for all you cocktail-less nonwriters.) Developmental editors willingly meet with you to hear all about it, from concept to characters to drafts, as you describe the big picture.
In short, developmental editors actually want to read what you have, and they're pretty good about telling you how to make it better.
You don't even need to bribe them with quality hors d'oeuvres.
