So a big congratulations for writing a new novel!

But before doing so, let us clear and beautify your story to enhance reading. But don’t worry as this is easy task compared to previous works we already did. So relax and start for today’s round.
A small mistake in a painting destroys the whole creative work. Similarly, a single error in your title can swallow its spotlight.
So why not to remove chances of such outcomes? Let’s go for it.
Here are the major things we need to do after writing a story for your novel:
- A detailed and insightful reading
- Factor Checking
- Send for proof reading
- Review and Edit
- Proceed Ahead
A detailed and insightful reading
Every writer has its own objectives behind writing a story. The book will remain incomplete if it couldn’t satisfy those objectives. Therefore, it becomes important to make sure that the story is up to mark or not.
So before moving ahead you must check out your novel's story. A detailed and insightful reading is one of the best suggestive measures you can take.
Just cross check your story while focusing on your ideas and objectives. You can take any action if there is something irrelevant. But doing so in the later stage may become a difficulty.
Give yourself a time and read it from the beginning. Make sure that your story is the exactly as you have planned.
In this next step, you need to check your written story on the key factors. While checking the key factors, you will be able to improve the reader experience.
It will significantly become easy for the readers to interpret and easily understand your novel.
A detailed factor checking also plays major role in publishing process. If your novel has so many errors, then it may it rejected on common grounds.
However, you may easily qualify the first round if your title makes a good reader experience.
Here are the key factors you can consider in your novel:
Spelling mistakes is one of the common errors in a story. Many of us make a lot of errors while typing.
A single spelling mistake may change the meaning of our word. Moreover, a title with spelling errors may question on the efforts of the author.
Therefore, let us make a deep analysis for checking our spelling inside book. Usually spelling mistakes are identified manually, but you can check online if you are not sure about any spelling.
You can either search on Internet or use online spelling checker tools.
You may use Grammar Check for checking spellings online for free.
We create a story not for ourselves but for the whole world. A writer can quickly understand his sentences even if it is not well arranged.
But others may have a different interpretation on that.
So what can we do avoid this?
Many writers have basic idea about Grammar. But that doesn’t describe the potential of a writer. Creativity and Grammar both are different things.
When I started my career, I was also poor at grammar. But then I took help from my seniors who were stronger at it.
Currently, I read my works twice to make sure that it is error free. But I still have to face this problem sometimes.
So if you are not sure about your Grammar, then you need to seek additional support. You can take help from an editor or use online tools.
Grammarly is among the top recommended tools to check grammar errors.

-Sentence length should be normal and not more than 20 words.
You can also make use of online tools to check reading score on the above grounds. Hemingway App is the best free tool to check and improve your reading score.
