What a Developmental Edit Is and Is Not

A Developmental Edit is a high level critique that does not include:
- Page-by-page edit
- Line-by-line edit
- Phraseology feedback

What a Developmental Edit is is a critique regarding:
- Plot Issues
- Pacing
- Information Sharing and Open Loops
- Point of View
- Voice

Foremost, a Developmental Edit is a learning experience and an opportunity to make my book more powerful and hopefully a great start to a series.

Thank you, Cathy Yardley of Rock Your Revisions fame. Your Developmental Edit rocks!

Next, a Revision Plan!
