How do I Hire an Editor? - video

Editing your own manuscript is challenging, but it can be beneficial when you know what you look for in your work. Freelance writer, Cindy Dashnaw, shares tips for editing your own work. She advises authors to cut around twenty-five percent of their draft. As a writer, you become attached to your work and cutting can be painful. But if you can take an objective view and look at your manuscript with an editor's eye, you can easily cut extra words, tangents, and repetition. Another option is to hire a professional proofreader and editor. Typos ruin an otherwise wonderful book, so having a clean manuscript lays a solid foundation for a successful book.
