Proofreading consists of a thorough revision of the manuscript to remove spelling errors, grammatical errors, correction of punctuation and noting of repetitive or overused words.
Copy editing is sometimes called line-editing. It is a thorough revision of the manuscript that removes spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors, and looks at flow and pace, with suggestions for sentence structure, construction, repetition, phrasing and effectiveness of language (for example: metaphor, simile, alliteration uses). Notes may be included highlighting logic holes, in-story contradictions and characterization.

An Anthology of Short Stories
Life is full of decisions we make, taking us along one road or down another.
There are moments in life, unexpected or tragic or magical, where unpredicted happiness can turn us from a planned path, where events we hoped for are abandoned on the way, and dreams are left forgotten by the roadside. And sometimes, the choices we make bring pain or joy in ways utterly unforeseen, for ourselves and for those we love.
Twenty-five extraordinary writers write about the pivotal decisions that influenced a life or lives, as well as the consequences of those decisions, and give us a short story collection to be remembered.
