I’m sure there are as many ways to approach editing as there are editors. Here’s what I’m learning about my editor’s style through the editing process:
I can expect to do two to three rounds of edits before copy edits.
For my initial round of edits (or “first pass”), my editor reads through my manuscript three times: Once with a pen “like a real old-timey editor”, as she says, once converting those edits to the computer with the Track Changes function, and once more for review before sending it off to me.
Anyone else who can share their editing experiences?
