How do you respond when you get edits you don't agree with? That is, let's say a book is being edited for a publisher, and you don't like the edits? What do you do?
(Nothing personal-- This isn't happening to me, either as an editor or a writer. Well, it did, recently, and after awhile I realized the editor was totally right and the book was much better with her suggested revisions... that always happens to me. I have an instinctive resistance, and then I realize I'm wrong. This actually makes me a better editor than a writer, I fear! But I have learned to keep my mouth shut for the first day or so after receiving the revision letter... I know I'll change my mind soon.)
Under what circumstances would you make a fuss? Under what circumstances would you hold your tongue? What's your experience been?
How would you counsel other writers to respond to editors' edits? Let's say you have their best interests at heart and aren't actually hoping to get the advisees blackballed in the industry, thereby culling your competition.
