Ten ways not to make your editor hate you.

1. Deadlines are there for everybody's protection.
2. She's already busy. Try not to suck. (By which I mean, don't get lazy just because you have an editor now.)
3. Don't argue unless you mean it.
4. If you mean it, don't be passive-aggressive about it.
5. Apologize when you are wrong.
6. When you are right, gloat quietly.
7. Don't make him apologize for the art department more than once per cover.
8. Intermittently, say thank you.
9. Swing for the fences.
10. Baked goods.
