Hip Hip Hooray! I finished line editing my 92,823 word MS!!!!! I’ve been working on it for six months. It takes a long time to go through that many words.
I don’t really know what to do with myself now. I guess I should start working on the next WIP, but I want to take a little break and CELEBRATE!
So while editing is on my brain this is how I edit.
- Macro Edits—Plot Holes, Set Pieces, Beginnings, Endings
- Mid Edits—Pacing, Flow, Dialogue, Characterization, Themes, Symbolism
- Micro Edits—Punctuation, Adverbs, Tags, A close look at every—single—word.
How do you approach editing? I would love to know. Got any great tips?
