Whatever may be your genre of writing, be it fiction, autobiography, philosophy to self helps, there is no denying the fact that without proper editing, a book cannot connect well with its readers.


Are you an author who is passionate about weaving thoughts in writing? Whatever may be your genre of writing, be it fiction, autobiography, philosophy to self helps, there is no denying the fact that without proper editing, a book cannot connect well with its readers. In the profession of authors, expressing your thoughts through writing is the rough draft while book editing is the final product that needs to be well presented and packaged to appeal to the readers. Whether you are a self editor of your books or planning to hire a profession for book editing, there are several common mistakes that need to be avoided. To help you make your book 100% error free, here in this article we will be discussing about some of these silly book editing mistakes outlined by HG Nadel a self published author that should be kept at bay for better readability and professional experience:

 

Give only one space: Many times it is seen that writers place double or more spaces in between two words or after a punctuation. Here it should be remembered that adding more or unnecessary spaces in writing not only makes it look bad but also is not in accordance to the standard writing norms. When book editing, always maintain that using more than one space is only acceptable when you are writing for an academic or term paper. Otherwise, the general rule accepts only one space after a word or punctuation.

 

Wrap your page beforehand: When working in a word document, remember to activate the 'wrap' option so that you will not need to press the enter key after the end of every line. The text will automatically get enveloped in a proper style, thus helping in book editing.

 

Check and revise yourself for multiple times: Many writers depend on the automatic spell check option to proof read their article. This is one serious mistake as you should understand that this process it's not 100% error free. Hence, when book editing; it's essential that you check through the spellings and punctuations rightly and personally.

 

Punctuations need to be rightly placed to make proper meaning: Another commonly indulged mistake that mostly goes unnoticed is the wrong use of punctuation. As a writer or professional editor you should have a thorough idea about the use of punctuations, which if used wrongly can lead to a completely distorted meaning. Hence it is the duty of a writer or editor to stay minutely careful about this mistake of book editing. For example, many times it is seen that semi colons or commas are used in the wrong place of a sentence, thus leading a complicated meaning. Even using punctuation outside a direct quotation is a wrong practice that the editor needs to be aware of.

 

Tab instead of space for next paragraph: A very common and general mistake that happens in book editing is the use of space bar instead of Tab key to move to the next paragraph. Many writers press the space bar for long to move to the next paragraph, where as the right way to start a new stanza is to press the tab key or enter.
