Edit, Edit, Edit…

The process of editing is a long and laborious task.

Every writer has to edit. Even if you hire an editor or have one provided for you by  a hands with laptop typing in nightpublisher, you still need to do some editing yourself.

How come? Because editors are human beings too, and thus are capable of making mistakes. I’ve heard sad tales of writers who sent their work through three different editors in a row, and still had mistakes left in the manuscript.

At the end of the day, no matter how many editors you may have had work on your book, it’s still your book. Any mistakes will be seen as yours, so you wantto weed out as many mistakes as possible.

No matter how many editors go through your work, you’ll still need to look at it yourself and make sure that it’s the best book possible. You’ll need to:

  • Check spelling and grammar.
  • Double check facts.
  • See if your story flows smoothly.
  • Watch for missing information.
  • Make sure that the information is consistent.
  • Check the page references.
  • and do a whole lot more.

You’ll have to edit that manuscript.

Like I’m doing now….
