Over at TokyoSpace, ChunHyang has a terrific essay on editing. It’s filled with great advice for anyone who’s writing for public consumption, whether the final product takes the form of a paper for a class, a weblog entry, or a script for publication. After being jarred by fairly glaring typos in the early pages of two otherwise excellent manga series that I was reading over the weekend, praise for editing is reassuring reading. (And yes, I should practice her suggestions more often than I do.)
