Against Editors → 

Posted on 29 August 2014

Hamilton Nolan:

It is really a two-step career journey, in the writing world. Writing, then editing... If you want to get regular promotions and raises, you will, for the most part, accept the fact that your path takes you away from writing and into editing, in some form. The number of pure writing positions that offer salaries as high as top editing positions is vanishingly small.”

I get the impression this applies to a lot of creative pursuits. Now that I’m ostensibly ‘in charge’ of making a radio show, I’m spending a lot less time actually making radio and a lot more doing… well, other things. I’m enjoying it, but would I permanently trade it for the daily craft of writing and audio production? Time (and my financial health) will tell.
