I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.
I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few. Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.
- The Different Kinds of Editing: A Breakdown (with Examples), from Writers Helping Writers: There are a lot of different kinds of editors out there. Do you know the differences? Excerpt: “All writers need an editor. Stephen King needs one. JK Rowling needs one. You and me? We DEFINITELY need one.”
Thanks for sharing! The examples are very interesting, though I think sometimes, book coaches and developmental editors processes might vary, based on who you’re working with. The publishing industry is pretty fluid in that area, especially thanks to indie publishing and ebooks.
By the way, you might be interested in our Writers Club. We network with publishing professionals to help authors, and free editing (of all different sorts) is a member perk. https://ryanlanz.com/writers-club/
I’d agree with the point about them varying. With the industry evolving as much as it does, I would think that editors and coaches would have to be fluid, at least in some ways.
And thank you for the link to the Writers Club! I’ll definitely take a look at it.
