A few days ago I received my manuscript with content editing feedback. Now I know what I’m doing for the next month and a half! Unless I lose my mind altogether I will complete this phase of the work and, in early January, submit to my line editor for further corrections. Once I get that back, it’s off to proofreaders (I’m convinced now that I will need at least two of them), and then… *deep breath* Publication.
I cannot emphasize too highly how important it is for a beginning writer to hire good editors. Particularly content editors. ‘Nuff said.
