How to Edit and Proofread Your Own Manuscript with Denise Loock

Here are the show notes for the most recent episode of the Christian Publishing Show.

You can listen to this episode here.

 

There are two ways to get better at writing. One is to practice writing, so your first drafts are better. The second is to learn how to edit your first drafts into better second drafts. It is common for some beginning authors to feel like the second draft is different, rather than better. This doesn’t need to be the case, however. You can learn how to become a better self-editor. In fact, that is exactly what we are going to talk about today.

We have a special guest on the show who is going to teach you how to edit and proofread your own manuscript.

She is a general editor for Iron Stream Media, and she’s the director of PENCON, the annual conference for Christian editors and proofreaders.

Denise Loock, welcome to the Christian Publishing Show.

    I tend to write stuff really fast,
    and editing comes later;
    when the yarn is told at last,
    I edit by Woodgator,
    cutting out invasive trees
    that grew in dead-end plot-lines,
    for it’s parasites like these
    that waste a reader’s precious time.
    The ‘Gator spins his steel-toothed drum,
    making forest ride from tangle,
    setting story’s sharp rhumb
    line with consistent crossing-angle,
    a path down which tale freely swings…
    amd now I must poofreed the thing.
