WrenSense: Editing — What is it?
Basically there are 3 types of editing. Here they are along with a definition of each.
“Proofreading means examining your text carefully to find and correct typographical errors and mistakes in grammar, style, and spelling.”
A line edit addresses the creative content, writing style, and language use at the sentence and paragraph level.
the goal of a copyedit is to address flaws on a very technical level – to make sure the writing that appears on the page is in accordance with industry standards. This is like an incredibly high-end proofread. Internal consistency means your plot, setting, and character traits don’t have discrepancies
