Developmental editing necessary to publish

Manuscripts require additional editing after consi

Developmental editing is a necessary step writers must take for getting a manuscript published. Once a manuscript is completed, it needs to be checked for continuity issues and gaps in plot development and character development. Writers are often so relieved to finish a project that they may miss issues with the plot or with the way the characters interact within the context of the story. A developmental editor's job is to read through a manuscript, note any inconsistencies and trouble spots, and make suggestions to the writer in order to improve the story's base elements. In some instances, developmental editors will make the changes themselves, return the manuscript back to the writer, and then work together to finalize the project for submission. It is not a stylistic editing of the manuscript, although that is another step in the process leading toward publication. Developmental editing is a look into a story's foundation to assess and correct any faults. Publishers will look favorably upon manuscripts that require a minimum amount of input from their teams, so it is important for writers to take as many steps as they can to perfect their submissions. It is always a good idea to have an editor look over a project once it is completed and ready for submission, as long as it is clear that there is no obligation to the editor if and when the project is accepted for publication. Developmental editing is just one step in many that can increase the likelihood of a manuscript's publication.
