Let’s face it… writers are busy persons. And after spending months crafting your story and ideas, mistakes in grammar and content can easily be overlooked.
Have you used one word repeatedly? Did your character have cobalt blue eyes in chapter one, but later on in chapter eight, your character’s eyes are sky blue?
That’s where having a fresh pair of eyes comes in. Having your manuscript professionally edited will identify and correct such errors.
What about being objective? Of course, you wrote the story and you love your story. So do your family and friends. They think your book is amazing! And it may be rightly so.
Did they shy away from telling you that certain paragraphs just did not flow well? Did they hesitate to inform you of clichés that would have been better omitted?
A professional editor will critique your work honestly and help you shape and shine your ‘diamond in the rough’.
Again, writers are busy. Hey, you already have spent countless hours penning your story. Why not save yourself some time afterward, by allowing an editor to read, read and re-read your work? Not only will you save time, but also the frustration of revising your story.
And don’t forget, you will be hiring a professional editor. You are paying for his/her expertise. A professional editor will not only correct mistakes on your manuscript, but will also help you to improve and refine your own writing.
