Before we barrage you with some of the specifics of editing, first let’s just start with the basics. The three different types of editing you will encounter in the writing process:
Proofreading: Proofreading is the stage where a work is evaluated for the nitpicky grammatical errors and typos. This is the last phase before publication to make sure that the completed work doesn’t have glaring errors in it.
Copyediting (Line Editing): Copyediting or Line Editing comes before proofreading because it may involve making changes to the actual copy that has been writing. Not only are copy editors looking for the typos, misspellings, and grammatical errors, but they are also trying to make the text read better, more consistently and concisely. They are trying to convey the meaning of the message in the best way possible.
Content Editing (Substantive/Developmental Editing): Content Editing or Substantive or Developmental Editing is relates to the meat of the story. If there are character issues, plot holes, or setting inconsistencies, a content editor is the individual who will help address these problems.
Stay tuned for more info on editing. Next week we will be posting on resources to help you in the editing process.
