Best of Both Worlds
So you’ve got your first draft and you’re ready to share it for the first time.
Copy editing is said to be most useful for inexperienced writers and people who are writing in a language other than their first (in this case, people whose first language is not English). This is another opportunity where you and I will work closely on various story elements as well as technical discrepancies. We will address a number of things, including:
- Plot structure, character development, and story flow
- Technical discrepancies regarding grammar and word choice
- Consistency across all of your writing
As a copyeditor, it is not my goal to overshadow or change your writing in any significant way. My goal is simply to bring your voice out and ensure that if you are following a particular style guide (APA, MLA, Chicago), the rules are being properly adhered to. This process is also helpful in making sure your story reads well and is entertaining to others.
