Great Interview

Meredith of The Writer's [Inner] Journey posts an excellent interview with editor Gina Frangello. The whole post is both informative and intelligent, but this was my favourite line:
All editors are familiar with the experience of rejecting a story or collection or novel only to find it later taken on by another editor whose opinion we greatly respect, seeing that work garner acclaim, and then wondering why we let that manuscript “get away”...but if it doesn’t punch you in the gut, you were not the right editor for the project.
(Emphasis mine)

Thanks to Lisa Voison for the link!
