Editing copies

Editing a copy. I am responsible, as a sub-editor/copy editor, for the missing ‘the’, ‘,’ and ‘a’, and the complexity of sentence and structure; to put ‘editing’ in simple words. I am responsible for maintaining the dignity of the writer’s idea, and not be a judge. But, I cannot make a copy mine, the original writer will be lost somewhere. When teaching young adults ‘to edit’, the challenge is to make them realise “be a teacher, correct and suggest. Keep the writer’s style alive.”

Wording ‘Editing’, styled in Haiku form of Poetry.
