Writing Techniques to Save Time and Money in the Editing Process
How can you employ techniques editors use in everything you write—whether it’s for your book chapters, promo materials, or business emails?
Barbara McNichol shares key tricks of the editing trade that can save authors time and money in the editing phase. Specifically, you’ll learn to:
- Whack Wordiness
- Set Your Objectives
- Pursue a Parallel Path
- Punctuate and Proofread with Fresh Eyes
- Match the Word to the Meaning
What do these mean? Well, they translate into writing techniques that editors take to heart when polishing an author’s work. When authors take them to heart, it strengthens the writing from the get-go and streamlines the editing process—a win-win!
Over the past 20 years, Barbara has provided expert editing of more than 300 nonfiction books in the categories of business, spirituality, self-help, how-to, health, relationships, and more. She is the creator of Word Trippers: Your Ultimate Source for Choosing the Perfect Word When It Really Matters–a handy word choice guide to clarify your writing.
