Before you start editing your story, make sure you know your target audience.
So, when you come to edit even as something as simple as your vocabulary or grammar, you will know the level you need to be aiming for.
Have you made anything too simple? Or perhaps you need to up your game a bit and use more complicated sentence structures and vocabulary that will stretch your readers?
What about the danger level, and what your readers can cope with?
How about the length of your story and the length of your chapters… are they a good fit?
Knowing your audience is vital, so here are three tips for you:
- Spend time with them
- Read books they love
- Try your story out on them.
If you do all these things, when you come to edit your story, you will already have a great idea as to what’s needed. 🙂
Hope that helps you with your stories,
