You’ve completed your manuscript and are eager to send it out into the world, but for your sake (and for the sake of your work) it’s important to determine the level of editing you require.
Any good copy editor will provide a style sheet when returning an edited manuscript to an author. But, you might ask, just what the heck is a style sheet and does an author really need one?
Sentences seem like simple enough beasts. You have a capital letter, one or more words, and a period (or possibly a question mark or exclamation point or ellipsis). You usually have a subject and predicate (noun and verb).
