In between macro-editing (developmental editing) and proofreading for mechanical errors lies Content editing.

Macro editing focuses on the novel as a whole and the structure of entire multi-chapter segments at times. Proofreading focuses on the necessary minutia of grammar, punctuation and spelling. Content editing (as I use the term) refers to editing scenes, paragraphs, dialog narration, description, and basic style and voice elements. In this course, we will learn more about this type of editing.

The topics include

  • Introduction to Editing
  • Introduction to Scenes: Types
  • Elements of a Scene
  • Structure of a Scene
  • Transitions
  • Data Dumps
  • Handling Backstory
  • Dialog Basics
  • Dialog Attribution
  • Punching up the Style
