Abstract

Once the first draft of the manuscript is completed, emphasis shifts from primarily writing to primarily editing. Editing existing text is often easier than writing it. Eventually, multiple drafts of the manuscript are written and rewritten. Days of focusing on the manuscript have led to exhaustion, but also the satisfaction that the manuscript is ready to submit. This chapter discusses the editing process and how to bring the manuscript to a close. These steps include approaches to making revisions, getting feedback from others, dealing with minor formatting and syntactical issues, and making the final edits.
