Professional Editing and Proofreading Services
James Thurber once said, "Editing should be, especially in the case of old writers, a counseling rather than a collaborating task. The tendency of the writer-editor to collaborate is natural, but he should say to himself, 'How can I help this writer to say it better in his own style?' and avoid 'How can I show him how I would write it, if it were my piece?'"
There are three primary focuses to the editing process. In the substantive editing part of the process, the work is examined for troublesome writing habits which permit fatal errors in structure. This includes examining the strengths and weaknesses of the manuscript relevant to engaging the target audience. The line editing part of the process seeks to make your writing consistent, smooth, and compelling so your reader moves effortlessly through your material. The copy editing part of the process is designed to correct the mechanics, grammar, spelling and punctuation errors. Once these areas are complete, assistance is offered in the area of layout in preparation for printing.
