editing

Editing is an umbrella term for a range of increasingly complex activities professionals can do with your manuscript to make it better. Editing could be a deep dive into your manuscript, with advice on how to improve structure and ideas in order for your message to go across exactly as you want it to. On the other end, there is a final check for overlooked spelling mistakes, extra commas and the occasional grammar miss. It usually involves following a specific style guide, such as The Chicago Manual of Style (primarily in literary print publications) or The AP Stylebook (used by newspapers and journalistic publications.
