How to Edit a Book in Three Simple Steps By. Inner Editor
So, you just finished a book, eh? I bet right now, you are feeling something along these lines.
Well, ~News Flash~ your book is far from perfect. You need to whip that sorry piece of kilobytes into shape! But, never fear, Inner Editor is here to help.
Step 1The first thing you need to do is iron out the plot. Make sure it's consistent. Make sure that Mr. Sprinkles, who you killed off in Chapter 3, doesn't show up in Chapter 27. (In fact, just cut out Mr. Sprinkles altogether.)
Step 2Comb through that baby until every typo and unnecessary word is gone. Be relentless with yourselves.
Step 3Find yourself a good Beta. Make that, several good Betas. And be sure to LISTEN to what they say.
And remember . . .
Inner Editor is always watching.
