Does the writing make sense? Do you understand what the author is trying to say?
Are there parts of the story that are too long or too short?
Are there words that could be improved? Could you use synonyms to make the writing more powerful?
Is there a part of the story that could be rewritten to make it better? What would your suggestions be?
Give examples of how parts of the story could be rewritten to be more powerful, more interesting, more creative, more exciting or scarier.
An editors job is to help make the writing better! Give suggestions and examples that will help make the story better!
