A developmental edit focuses on things like plot holes, character and plot development issues, timing, inconsistencies and problems with dialogue.I also tend to highlight writing quirks an author may have, and sentence structuring issues that may need some attention.This is the edit you want to pursue once you are fairly confident in the content of your work.A line editor focuses on punctuation, spelling, grammar issues and some sentence structuring.If I believe your manuscript is best suited for traditional publishing, I will always do everything in my power to help you get there. For me, and this book, that was absolutely the right decision.It did very well with self-publishing, certainly better than most, and given all the above—I don’t think it ever would have made it to print if I hadn’t.So once this manuscript is done, I will be pitching it to agents and pursuing the traditional path.
It has traditional appeal, and my desire now is to write novels for a living.Keeping that in mind, it’s fair to say that a developmental edit is the hardest part of the process.Most people send me their manuscripts feeling pretty confident in what they’ve got, and most of the time I have to disappoint them by telling them there’s still a fair amount of work to go.The developmental editor doesn’t fix those issues for you (and if you’re looking for someone who will, what you really want is a ghost writer—I do that as well).They simply point out the issues to you and provide ideas on how to fix those issues. Line Editing If developmental editing is big picture, line editing is the fine detail stuff.
