Manuscripts, particularly of romance, allow for more flexibility of rules than academic papers or technical writing; however, there needs to be a fundamental understanding of standard grammar before those rules can be bent. A dangling modifier in a romance story is still a dangling modifier, but a writer may be able to get away with a preposition at the end of a sentence. Tone, diction, metaphors, allegories, setting, etc, all have more importance in fiction than in an essay, for example, and they need to work together to convey the story’s message to the reader. Also, the level of the vocabulary and the way words sound and link together are almost as important as the words themselves, for they set the tone of the manuscript—even if it's creative nonfiction. And while a manuscript may be fiction, certain facts established in the story need to remain the consistent—even if the author is creating these “facts” from scratch. A manuscript editor should be able to mitigate all of those concerns to create a quality work, one that meets industry standards, the reader's standards, and the writer's standards.

For clients who need proofreading and editing assistance with their manuscripts or short stories, particularly of literary, commercial, romance, and women's fiction genres, manuscript editor is the way to go. The editor will work with client to make sure the client's voice remains in tact while polishing the manuscript to be clean, concise, coherent, and quality. The editor will also make sure facts in the manuscript are correct and possible, but the client will ultimately have the last word.
