Line Editing

While copy editing is more about the mechanics of a book, line editing is about WRITING as a whole. What do I mean?

  • Creative content
  • Writing Style
  • Language in the sentence and paragraph level

   So, Line Edit exists to improve your prose, line by line (this is why it is called Line edit) to perfect your manuscript’s clarity and style (this is why it is also called Stylistic Editing).

What can you expect from a Line Edit?

  • Shifts in the tone,
  • Phrasing that is written unnaturally (This often happens with writers that have English as a second language),
  • Passages that don’t read well due to bland language use,
  • Dialogue or paragraphs that can be tightened,
  • Confusing narrative digressions,
  • Words or sentences that are extraneous or overused,
  • Redundancies from repeating the same information in different ways,
  • Run-on sentences,
  • Scenes where the action is confusing or the author’s meaning is unclear due to bad transitions,
  • Changes that can be made to improve the pacing of a passage,
  • Words or phrases that may clarify or enhance your meaning.
