How Does Effective Self-Editing Help You?

Self-editing reduces editing cost and time

Editors and proofreaders typically charge by the word or page. By reducing repetition, redundancy, and filler words, self-editing produces more compact manuscripts. When done well, the process also decreases the amount of editing required because there are fewer mistakes to correct.

Self-editing improves your writing skills

Writing and editing skills are naturally intertwined, and both come from a familiarity with the guidelines. A reliable grasp of grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure is a valuable tool, along with a well-stocked vocabulary. Learning to self-edit teaches you to write more succinctly and effectively.

Self-editing lets you self-publish with confidence

If you choose to self-publish, you may be able to skip hiring an editor, although a beta reader or proofreader are valuable assets. They have the objectivity to catch errors you may overlook due to your familiarity with the manuscript.

Self-editing helps you delight your readers

Readers love a well-edited book because it makes reading effortless and rewarding. That’s a must if you want to transform readers into steadfast fans who eagerly await your next creation. Happy readers also tend to share their enthusiasm for your work with others.

Four Pathways to Self-Editing Success

PATH 1: Identify and Fix the Most Obvious Issues

Editing issues are not on the same level in terms of importance. Some are more likely than others to be spotted by readers. If you’re short on time and struggling to write a lot of content fast, this is an excellent place to start. Learn to avoid common pitfalls that your readers might spot.

PATH 2: Obtain an Editing Assessment

Benefit from an assessment of your writing by a professional editor with twenty-five years of experience. A sample edit is included, along with an explanation of the changes. Get a personalized self-editing system that works for you and grows with you no matter what you write or how you plan to publish.

PATH 3: Use Editing Software for Quick Wins

Objectivity is the key to getting solid results from your self-editing efforts. With editing software as an objective partner, you’ll spot potential issues you might never discover on your own. Learn how and when to implement apps for the best results. Even better, you’ll discover how to transform and elevate everything you write.

PATH 4: Access the Self-Editing System

Master a step-by-step system for self-editing your manuscript (or your blog posts and articles). The path to self-editing success involves optimizing your strengths and turning your stumbling blocks into building blocks. You’ll start with a tested process that will help you identify what to enhance and what to transform. 

I’ve worked with five editors on various projects, and none of them match Sandi’s skill, knowledge, and cooperative style. She does more than edit; she works with the author.

Sandi is a wonderfully talented editor. Her contribution to this book was tremendous, and I thank her beyond what words can describe.
