Editorial Aug 2015

"Good stopping places" vs "Good Story" indeed!

Dan do you have a rough projected final word count on the story?

As for editors, I think there are a few different levels of editing. Some of the first sets of stuff described I think goes under "copy-editing".

Then we get to the one that chills me! I'm pretty good (if I'm really on point!) about spelling, and most of grammar. But I know I have *terrible* problems with tense and voice! To me that feels like another level up.

Then above that, you get content editing suggestions, anything from "hey, this jumps" or "the ending feels off", to "I don't know if I like the characterization, is that really how you wanted it? I want to know more about Jane."
