Here is my best explanation:

'determined' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'do good again for the editor' is the wordplay.
'good again' becomes 'gg' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'for' says to put letters next to each other.
'the editor' becomes 'ed'.
'do'+'gg'+'ed'='DOGGED'

'to' is the link.
