“When something can be read without effort, great effort has gone into its writing.”
– Enrique Jariel Poncela
So we have mentioned 2 out of 4 benefits of editors. We talked about quality, and how much value can an editor add to our precious document. We talked about editors not being biased, and about having that ability to make corrections that make our document consistent and relevant.
Now I’m going to talk to you about one of the most obvious benefits: saving time.
Good writing consumes large amounts of time, which is the single most precious resource available to an author. The whole process comes from more than just inspiration, its research, its writing, correcting grammar and style, and going through it several times. Now, doing this ONCE is enough, but going through the whole document once is enough for you to lose more than just a couple of hours.
So, if you hand over your document to an editor, you can use your time to do other things that can be beneficial to the document itself, for example marketing. An editor should help you reduce the time it takes to move your manuscript publication because it reduces the chances of the document not being rejected (more on this later), it helps you have time to build an audience…Well you get the idea; rather than re-reading your creation for the sixth, seventh, or tenth time, you can move on to another project, knowing your work is being edited in a timely manner.
If time is money, just think how much money an editor can save for you.
