Line editing is a comprehensive style of editing that looks more into how you, as author, utilized the language in conveying your story/message to your readers. More than just combing for technical oversights as in punctuation, spelling, and grammar, line editing ensures the cohesion of surrounding context and checks if the sentences evoke the intended thought you wanted to impart to your readers.
Line Editing looks out for the following specifics:
- Point of View
- Character Voice
- Character Development
- Plot Structure
- Overall Theme
- Overall Consistency
- Overall Weaknesses within the Story
Line editing is more into checking the composition of already-written sentences if they are not redundant, having no dangling modifiers, unclear meaning, word usage depending on context, consistency in pronoun use/narration, basic fact-checking.
