Editor, Proofreader, And Critic
In my last three posts, I’ve talked about my work with fiction, blogs and articles, and marketing and web content. What happens once all of that has been written already? You need a second pair of eyes to look it over, spot mistakes you missed, and offer ways that the piece may be improved.
There is developmental editing, then there is copy editing.
Developmental is the core of the story. What happens in the plot? Are the characters well-developed? Are there plot holes? This is all about the big picture and if every plot point is important and enjoyable within the piece. Developmental focuses on the heart of the book and its characters.
Copy editing is all about grammar and how the story is being told. Are the word choices and spelling correct? Are there run-on sentences? Punctuation issues? This editing is more technical and related to the structure of the book. It ensures ease of reading for those that decide to pick up a copy.
I’ve self-published my own book, am an avid reader, taken editing courses and read books, and listened to experts on YouTube. I tend to have my editor hat on when I’m reading for pleasure and point out things that can be improved. I’ve worked with clients and used editing programs to assist in my learning.
Knowing how to self-edit is a part of being a published writer, especially when you do it yourself. All my experiences can be used to help your piece come alive with my suggestions and expertise.
Proofreading is the last step in any editing process. Tidying up loose ends. Making sure nothing has been missed in other editing stages. It’s the final read-through to ensure that your piece is free of errors and ready to be shared with the world. You may find one or two mistakes slip through the cracks, but even the most famous authors have minor errors in their novels.
Rely on me to carefully read through your piece and make sure it is ready to go with minimal changes needed!
Are you lost on where to bring your story next? Are you struggling to develop ideas? Do you need a second opinion on whether you need a certain chapter in your book or not? Are you using the right words to get your point across?
To me, critique doesn’t involve any changes. It’s an evaluation of both positive aspects and constructive criticism. It’s a consultation and my written report with suggestions, comments, questions, and anything else I think will be helpful for your piece.
When you’re looking for someone to provide constructive criticism and positive reinforcement, I’d love to help.
