For the case of publishing, it cannot be avoided in any writing, and for that case, it has to be done. The kinds of writing that you are noting down are what will determine the kind of editing that can be used. The first type of editing is developmental editing in which this gets to focus on the general structuring and content of the book and also the changes that you can make to improve it. Since this type of editing has no much to be looked at; the editing will have to rely on the editor. Therefore with this type of editing, all it does is giving feedback for you actually to make some general changes.
When at the grammar factory all that is done is going through the book then a story is brought about entailing some varieties of covering in the book. One of the covers is the general feedback in which it gets to tells what you did well and some issues that are recurring through the book. The other thing covered is the content feedback in which this tells of recurring content mistakes throughout the book for instance repetition, irrelevant content or even shallow content. The outlining structure of the book gets to rely on the content of the book. Therefore with the outline, it will have to include the explanation of each chapter of the book, the list of episodes and even the subtopics.
With basic editing, it looks at generally the content and structure of the book but also the editor is the one that gets to make the needed changes. With this type of editing, it gets to make your valuable book since it can be for your brand and also for the readers. Reviewing the structure of the book and working on the sound are among the many things that are done in the structural edit. Copyediting deals with the readability of the text and ensures that the writing gets to flow very well and smoothly to readers in a way that it makes sense.
You will note that basic editing deals with the general setting of the book, copyediting looks at the sentences, correct grammar, paragraphs and correct spellings. Therefore this type of editing focuses on the correctness of the articles, sentences and grammars for the excellent flow. Proofreading majorly deals with the accurateness of the writing in which it looks at the punctuation, grammar, spellings and even the consistency. Editing looked at things in depth because some other times a word can be grammatically correct and is well punctuated, but it does not make sense thus with editing you will know how to deal with it.
