Forum rules
This forum is for questions that don't fit into a more specific workshop's forum. (If there's a more specific forum that's appropriate, please post there.) For example, a post about writing science fiction belongs in the SF writing forum, but a post about writing that applies to all writers could go here. Questions about the general nature of the critique.org workshops could go here, but not about a specific workshop.

6 Ways Copy-editors Make Your Book Better
A good copyeditor brings so much to the party. He or she can:
1. Go over grammar, punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure with a fine-tooth comb.
2. Check for consistency of verb tense, tone, and mood.
3. Find instances where sentences or paragraphs could be moved to make more logical sense.
4. Ask questions about clarity of idea, or accuracy of fact.
5. Call attention to parts of the text that could be tightened, expanded, livened up or deleted.
6. Make suggestions — synonyms for overused words, deletions of redundant words or phrases.
With a good copy-editor on your team, misplaced modifiers, dangling participles, its/it’s, to/too and other hair-raising/hare-raising errors will melt away. Skilled editors say that mistakes “leap off the page” at them. And potential readers of your book will not be distracted by sloppy copy
