We had a great discussion last Friday during the National Association of Memoir Writers Member-only Teleseminar for April, “Who Needs Editing? No, Really….” with Brooke Warner, held March 12, 2010. We hope you enjoyed the discussion if you were available to participate live on the call!
This conversation was chock-full of strategies for writers at various stages of their projects. It was both permission-giving and a reality check.
We were able to discuss the following questions:
- What’s the difference between developmental editing and copyediting?
- When should I seek outside help?
- How do I know if I’m being overedited?
- Should every writer get editorial help?
- How do I know when it’s good enough?
A big thank you to Brooke for sharing her insights and perspective with us!
