Line editing is often used interchangeably with copy editing. However, line editing analyzes each sentence individually to help your story sing. The line editor will examine word choice and syntax in order to bring out the power and meaning of each sentence.
While Proofreading and Copy Editing are two different stages, they tend to get grouped together.
Copy editing corrects spelling, punctuation, and grammar while also maintaining consistency within the text, so the reader can focus on the story.
Proofreading is the final stage before publishing your manuscript and where an eagle-eyed professional corrects spelling and grammar. Proofreaders catch even typesetting mistakes such as a double space.
Developmental editing focuses on the big picture. In this stage of editing, the editor and author will work together to resolve issues with the structure, plot, pacing, and characters. At this stage, the editor focuses on the target readers in relation to industry standards.
