Editing- How Important Is It To Our Work?
Editing puts the polish on your words, allows your writing to shine, and will keep the reader interested until the end. Learn about echoes, overused words, the dreaded” ly” words- are they necessary - action words - what are they and how they can replace the old standby of “said” and “asked.” Do you change POV in the correct manner? Are your chapters lengths all over the place- some short – some too long? Does it make a difference?
Examples of the above will be discussed. Bring any of your work for a quick review. Janet will discuss why we write in general and will offer a handout listing things to watch for when doing your final edit yourself (yes, plural “edits”).
KAC, District 5, meets on the second Saturday from 2-4 p.m., at Rockwell Library, 5930 E. 9th St., Wichita, KS.
Hope to see you there!
