Editing: it’s probably the most important aspect of publishing a book. More than the book cover or sometimes even the story itself, editing can often make or break a good story. Why? Because editing helps polish the story and make it shine. Without editing, a good story could become unreadable, cumbersome, and looked over by readers.
As the first part of my series, The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly of Self Publishing, we’re going to talk about Editing. Everyone has had both good and bad experiences with their editing: between using software, hiring editors, and discovering typos…we all are faced with different hurdles throughout our publishing journey.
Over the next two weeks I’ll be sharing thoughts and stories from many different authors (including myself) in regards to their experiences with editing.
What can you look forward to in the coming weeks? Let me tell you!
- Insights on editing software
- Insights on finding and working with an editor
- Mistakes that authors have made along the way
- And more!
So stay tuned while we begin to discuss all these topics and more. As a reader, you might understand more about the amount of effort put into an author’s work. As a writer, you’ll learn about all your options. We can all continue to learn and improve our craft.
So if you’re interested, stay tuned.
