So you've had the editor working on your manuscript, and at last it is back in your hands.
(The wait can feel like forever, can't it?)
If you've opened your edited document, you may have already experienced the minor coronary that can accompany seeing those red marks for the first time.
Sorry about that. I tried to warn you...
If you haven't seen your edits yet, brace yourself. This is going to hurt a little. Maybe a lot.
Do yourself a favor - before you open the file, check out this video that explains why editing hurts, and what you can do about it.
So What Now?
Now that you have edits in hand, you'll need to go through them one at a time and accept or reject each edit.
Being the editor, I highly recommend approving an overwhelming majority of the changes suggested.
The video below demonstrates exactly where to find the Track Changes feature in MS Word, and how to use it with your edited manuscript.
If you're a bit like me, and dread tutorials, don't worry.
It's way easier than you think.
