Difference between Authors and the Editors

People always wonder why every creative writer needs an editor, so here I am with the answer.

Both writers and editors are vital in the creation of written material. Writers develop and research original written material, while editors guide, review and revise content.
Writers are the people behind the text for books, periodicals, promotions and online publications, including blogs, informational websites and online newspapers. Writers also create the stories and dialogue for video games, movies, television shows and scripted radio broadcasts. To make their writing accurate and believable, writers and authors conduct original research through a variety of methods depending on their genre of writing. For example, fiction writers may use observation to research personal interactions, while nonfiction writers typically conduct interviews and research historical books or texts.

On the other hand, Editors oversee a publication and its Authors. Sometimes authors also hire an editor personally with whom they are comfortable with. So that the editor will help in creative modification of the author. I also loved working with Richa Singh, my editor for the novel ‘A Non Entity’.
Personnel matters that editors may be responsible for include providing writers with assignments, giving writers feedback on their work and hiring editorial assistants, interns and fact checkers. To manage a book, magazine, journal or other publication, editors plan the content, decide what materials will be used and, in fiction works, review storylines. Editors may also annotate drafts for revision to ensure that grammatical and factual errors are not in the final product.

Overall, an author is incomplete without editor and an editor is idle without an author. Both are like the two wheels of a productive creation.
