Tips on Editing A Novel

I have always maintained that it is relatively easy to write a novel. It’s far more difficult to edit one! I wonder if you agree with me on this. Editing is not restricted to correcting the typos and checking the punctuation. It’s a time-consuming, concentrated effort to make the book a better, more absorbing  read for your readers. After all, the book is meant for them, right?In this context, I found “Ten Editing Tips” by Margaret Atwood of much use. These are perhaps basic points but paying attention to them can make a big difference to your book. It can make your book a winner, instead of sinking without a trace!
