Copyedit & Line Edit

Almost there! As important as it is to fill in the plot holes of your story, the readability is what helps to keep your audience interested. Sentences that do not complement each other will cause your story to appear poorly built. Your developmental edit helped to design the structure, but with a faulty copyeditor you may find yourself with a “this would’ve been great if,” type of scenario. Receiving a copyedit will create a natural flow for your story, that will add value to your readers experience.

Before we proceed let’s review what copyediting is, what it entails, and finally determining if copyediting is for you.

Fact checking (i.e., geography, dates, accuracy of plot timeline)

Identify inconsistencies

Identify plot holes
