The Need for Editing

If you are a new author than this post is for you. Most established authors know exactly why editing their manuscript is necesssary. I will try to cover some of the major reasons on this blog post.

First of all, we need to understand what exactly does editing mean. Editing is the process of selecting and preparing writtten, visual, audible and film media used to convey information through the processes of correction, condensation, organization, and other modifications performed with an intention of producing a correct, consistent, accurate, and complete work (Wikipedia: free encyclopedia).

Secondly, editing is important because you want your readers to come back and buy your books. If your book is hard to understand, your readers will become annoyed and irritated. If errors are distracting than they may simply put the book down because they can not get into the story-line. Some people don’t think that misplaced commas matter but let me tell you that they do.

Next, editing your work will cut out the clutter. You will notice that some things in your manuscript should be left out, due to redundancy and unclear expressions. They will often bore or confuse the reader.

Last of all, editing is important especially to the publisher. If you are searching for an agent or a publisher, you need to present your work as clean as possible. Most agents will put your work down if they cannot get through all the typos, incomplete sentences, comma splices, subject-verb disagreements. The list goes on and on.
