Why Writers Should Trust Editors

Mar 28, 2016

Writers are, for the most part, proud creatures. Sure, they seem to sulk more than anything, and people might imagine them as having more of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s mild-mannered temperament than of Ernest Hemingway’s argumentative one. But it must be remembered that they do pour so much effort into their works, and they treat them as their children. So, of course, they feel what parents do especially when showing off their sons and daughters to the world: pride. But pride is not equal to perfection. Elizabeth Bennet would probably even go so far as to say that pride is a flaw (though she did marry Darcy in the end—but that’s not the point), and she would be right; pride often hinde......

The English Language: Confusing People and Muddling Meanings

Mar 24, 2016

Human language is ever evolving. What one thing means today can be different tomorrow. Language is dynamic, and this holds true especially for the most widely used one in the planet: the English language. New words are coined. Meanings are arbitrary. Rules change. Because of this, it is no surprise that through the eons, English has amassed a lot of confusing words that are often used incorrectly. English is riddled with words that seem to be close synonyms but are, in fact, not interchangeable. Some of these words are the following: Whole (having all the parts: not divided or cut into parts or pieces) and Entire (complete or full: not lacking or leaving out any part) Often use......

A Venture of Sorts: Putting Your Hope and Investing Resources in Your Proofreaders

Mar 21, 2016

People often ask whether writing is a job or more of a calling. But can’t it be both? Writing is a profession, and writers have the rest of the world—and even worlds beyond—at the tips of their fingers. They can touch another soul, they can slay a murderous witch, and they can save a whole kingdom. And it is not always so noble and grandiose either. Writers can also urge people to get something, as in advertisements; advocate for them to support a cause, as in campaign collaterals; and provide them relevant information, as in public advisories. Given that writers more often than not have a wide range of audience, it is necessary that they get their messages across without muddl......

15 Reasons a Writer Needs a Proofreader

Mar 17, 2016

“Yer a writer, Harry.” Harry is not so sure about that. After all, he just got back his essay from his teacher, and there are a lot of red marks on it. When people read a book, of course, the most important things to them are the story and its elements. They say, “Oh, that’s quite an awesome twist!” or maybe “The character development is remarkable!” They praise the author’s ability to string words together to paint pretty pictures and set sublime scenes. What they don’t say is “Wow, that’s a nice use of the em dash!” or “The italicization of this phrase is on point!” They don’t do that because, well, it’s not really relevant to the plot now, right? Wrong. See, when writers......

Proofreading through the Years: From Rendered Favor to Outsourced Service

Mar 14, 2016

Proofreading, as a practice, has been around as early as the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. There was no department to handle this distinct job in publishing houses; authors just used to send their manuscripts to their peers or hang them up in public squares for corrections and commentaries. However, when the printing industry grew with Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of the movable type in the first half of the 1400s, they recognized that a systematic correction and proofing process was necessary. Publishers collaborated with educated men and scholars to read the proofs for them, and “it became the glory of the learned to be correctors of the press to eminent printers” (D’Israeli, 1......
