I know I should pretty much always trust an editor I'm working with, but some changes and cuts can be hard to make. I'm not talking about an editor you hire but one that is buying your work. These guys know what they're doing and when something is good for publication. I do trust the process and know that things come out better with an editor than I can make them on my own. Still, it's tough to kill those darlings and see what I once thought were some of the best parts go. I'm not new to working with editors, but I'm not sure it's any easier. If I know my writing will come out better, why does part of me want to resist all changes? Of course, I don't. But is it hard for any of you to work with editors? Is there anything that's made it easier even knowing there are probably more than one round of edits? It's all for the greater good of the writing, right?
