The beginning of the edit process. We read through the whole manuscript and evaluate all major aspects of a story, as it pertains to the whole of the piece.
A developmental edit is the second, deeper assessment of the major aspects of a story.
The line edit is a deep, line by line look at sentence structures, repetition, dialogue tags, and weaker prose. This is where we fine-tune the vocabulary consistency and readability of your text.
After your content is solid, a copy edit is the fourth edit in line.
This is where all spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors are meticulously fixed.
