I always thought you had to go to the Beta readers to get true editing. Turns out, the author is the best first-editing tool.
But how? I’ve posted a bit about this before. There is macro editing (i.e.: does this turn in the plot make sense? Should the ending change completely?) and micro editing (i.e., comas, passive voice, etc.). This is about micro editing. Ten tips to help anyone write better. Even a blog post. 🙂
I really liked the tips and they are incredibly helpful because I’m in the middle of editing Amy’s Courage and man, alive! It’s not easy. (sigh). A big thanks to C. S. Lakin for the post!
