A lot of aspiring writers have the misconception that an editor’s job is to fix all the problems in someone’s work. The cold hard truth is that there is a lot more that goes into editing than some people assume.

This looks at every individual line. Some may think of this as Proofreading, wherein issues with spelling and punctuation are amended. On a broader level, this ensures the writing is clear, consistent (with style, tense, and POV), and other minor issues.
