Manuscript Doctor: Professional editors will often take one brief look at the first
paragraph of a manuscript before throwing it into a rejection pile. Having your work
checked by a professional may help to avoid many common mistakes that turn editors
Getting a manuscript in front of an editor is no easy task. It takes diligence and
a lot preparation. After potentially years of work, you want to send your completed
draft off to a person who will take it seriously. A number of mistakes exist that
editors tag as obvious errors. Beyond these are subtler issues for which editors
look. Surviving the first sixty seconds with an editor may mean the difference between
publication and rejection.
A writer can take the time to learn the ropes, and probably should, if they intend
to publish again and again. However, if you do not yet know how to impress or please
an editor, you may need help getting started.
Manuscript doctor services look for common “no-no’s” that will get your manuscript
rejected fast. This can be done with evaluations of various sizes, ranging from the
first page of your work to the first chapter, or to the complete novel.
