Editing checklist

Writer Wednesday tip for the fellow writers and authors is these checklists I have for my editing phrase – part two.

Chapter checklist

A – Action

R – Romance

I – Information

S – Suspense

E – Emotion

Overall story and plot

I – Imagery

D – Dialogue

E – Emotion

A – Action

I have these two checklists sticky note to my table and laptop. As I filter through words and fill in skipped detail, I look at my checklist. Reminding me how to intrigue and capture my potential readers.

Do you have any checklists whilst editing?

Copy, paste, write, photograph or screenshot these lists and use them. Comment below if they helped, if they need adding to or just to say hello.
