TIPSY TODAY with Rogena
STYLE: Writing Style & Editorial Style
I find I'm able to become engrossed in the manuscript I'm editing so much so that I'm able to 'hear' the 'voice' of the author, remaining in their voice as best I can when making any changes or suggestions.
Editorial style is commonly confused with writing style.
While writing style may refer to a writer's unique voice or application of language, editorial style refers to a set of guidelines that editors use to help make your words as consistent and effective as possible.
A good book editor will be sensitive to maintaining a balance between your unique writing style—your voice—and editorial style.
Studies have shown that consistent editorial style not only lends credibility to your work but also makes it easier to read and understand.
Spread the word!
