Behind the Lines of Writing

Underneath the surface and behind the lines of any piece of writing is a well thought out project. The execution might be lacking but the time and effort to produce a book takes a lot of time, energy and focus. The only thing that might be hindering a proper execution is the lack of editing. Like John Irving said, Half my life is in the act of revision. He knew that no matter how well a writer can write or how much imagination, education or books written, a writer must edit their manuscript before it is compiled into a book format. An author might research their material thoroughly, be encouraged by others, have lots of ideas to write about but that doesn’t mean the book will be worth the read. Many successful writers made an outline, hired an agent, edited brilliantly but then had no idea of what it took to get the book to the masses. Each new and well-known writer knows that there are tips, helpful advice, marketing strategies behind the lines of writing. Don’t forget that each book needs that cover art photo that will appeal to the readers. It takes an effort to find someone capable of producing beautiful artwork. So remember that each book has to go through a series of events before it is completed. After hours of planning, writing and editing the work, a masterpiece is finally created.

    Very true statement about revising. When I get a beautiful print book with great formatting and a fantastic cover, I find it that much more obvious when there are grammar and spelling mistakes.
