Comprehensive Line Editing (Stage 2 Editing)

This type of edit is a deep read for significant improvement in your story. It is called a comprehensive edit, or a line edit, because the editor examines your book one line at a time.

Line editing is very detailed, and involves improving your actual writing not just fixing spelling errors or commas (that is copy/proof editing and should come last). Here are some of the things we look for in a line edit:

  • Unnatural phrasing
  • Inconsistent voice
  • Redundant phrases
  • Overused words
  • Echoing words / phrases
  • Split infinitives
  • Excessive passive voice
  • Confusing POV / head-hopping
  • Poor transitions
  • Difficult to visualize movements
  • Poor word choice
  • Unnatural stopping points at chapter / section breaks
  • Uncomfortable pacing
