  1. Major life lesson for a writer! Editing, any kind of editing, takes time. For a copyeditor, it takes time to go through a manuscript line by line reading for clarity, consistency, and (of course) the more mechanical stuff like spelling and punctuation. A substantive or development editor may not focus on the more minute details, but it takes time to absorb the work, identify areas that need strengthening, and come up with suggestions for improvement. When some service promises to “edit” a 300-page manuscript for $500, be very, very skeptical. Good luck with the novel!
