My Editing Style


1. What is your editing style?

My editing process is filled with rounds of edits – 4 to 5 at least. After finishing the book, I take a few week break (3-4 weeks) from the book and then I print the manuscript and do a read through. While doing my read through, I write notes upon notes upon notes and mark up the edit.

Then, I edit AGAIN.

After that edit, I save it to my Ibooks on my Ipad and do my read through on there. (I try to switch the format up a bit to see it in different ways.) While doing that, I take notes again.

Edit another time.

Send to critique partner.

Print manuscript. Read through. Make notes.

2. While on a deadline, how do you stay on top of your edits?

• Work. Work on it. Work.

• Schedule your writing time.

3. About how many chapters do you aim to finish a day?

Lately, I’ve been trying to edit 2-4 chapters a day.

4. How long do edit for?

As long as it takes to finish the edits.
