I have been in the process of getting an editor for well over the past 30 years, so I must have something worthwhile to say about it, I should think. But I won’t insure APA style or the usage of the Chicago Manual or other similar style manuals I will just do a simple summary of the most common editing forms here. Foundationally, editing is a much discredited but largely honorable profession for authors and prospective writers that have a degree in English and sufficient expertise creating copy to know what to search for in the spelling, grammar and syntax departments. That type of editing is largely referred to as line editing, and it does not entail a lot greater than heavily proofreading and correcting copy so that it reads well, taking out redundancies and improving the stream while keeping the original writer’s voice throughout vital to the majority of copy editing, which I will discuss later.
Line editing is just 1 step Down from colour editing, including everything in line editing and then some you need to now edit for how the material reads as a whole, but not in a generalized way as you want with articles or developmental editing. You only have to pep up or otherwise change the taste, spicing I use recipe references a lot, elegance and general tone of the piece you are color editing. The idea with this sort of editing is to enhance the reader’s enjoyment of this experience, and to make the copy read at a more professional or complicated sometimes, depending on the desired voice, at a less complicated or more commonly familiar tone.
The next step up in editing is a huge one, and is actually more rewriting than editing content editing. This also includes developmental editing, even though some think of these as two different editing styles. Me, I have a tendency to blend all my editing styles with composing and copyrighting a book, although I try hard to keep the original writer’s voice each time. Anyhow, Copyedit means reworking or occasionally only adding some content to the item, while making sure it fits in to the initial or desirable writing style. Reworking may mean a thorough Rewrite of everything, or it might only indicate some rearrangement, such as shuffling chapters around to be able to improve things. The idea behind both developmental and content editing is to enhance and improve the item, so that its entire structure is much more sound, which makes it read from beginning to end in a better and improved manner.
