March is Revising and Editing Month at the Writers Chat Room.

I believe you cannot do a revision without doing some editing. I think the two actions are symbiotic.

Mostly.

At the end of the re-writes, the cuts and the spelling corrections and picking at nits, a writer ends up in full-on edit mode. But this full-on mode happens at the end.

Then you get to work on your submission packet.

Pure editing, to me, is when a publisher or a paid editor or close friend begins to read your work. Of course, an editor’s suggestions might send you back into the revision phase again.

I hope you’ll come to chat and share your feelings on the twin monsters named Editor and Reviser. We should talk about the differences. I will be leaning on my Long Ridge Course Material and Understanding the Difference between Revising and Editing and Why You Need Both.
