Editing Tip for Writers

Filed under: Author Tips — Larry James @ 7:00 am

Dangling Participle cartoonAlways allow time for what you have written to rest before you begin to edit. I suggest letting 24 hours go by, then read what you have written once more with fresh eyes.

I usually do this several times before I feel that the writing is complete and there is nothing else that “I” can see that needs changing.

Next, if you are self-publishing, hire an editor. Let them find all the mistakes that you couldn’t see. And. . . they will.
