editing

big picture edits

In these edits, I’m looking for logical flow, what information is included and what is left out, and how coherent the content is. I might give comments like:

  • Does this matter?

  • Can you provide another example here?

  • This is contradictory with the last paragraph on page 4.

copy edits

These edits are focused on making your writing sound better. I’m looking for grammar mistakes, wordiness, repetition, and confusing language. My comments might include:

  • Sometimes you capitalize “author” and sometimes you don’t. Should be consistent throughout.

  • Be careful of using “very” so often—it’s a filler word!

  • This paragraph is quite long compared to the others surrounding it. I think it would be possible to shorten it and retain the content. See my suggested cuts.

proofreading

These are your final, final edits. I’m looking for mistakes you may have missed after the content is complete. We all need an extra set of eyes sometimes! My comments might include:

  • Missing a comma here.

  • This should be “their,” not “they’re.”

  • This link goes to a 404! Make sure to update before you send this out.
