2. Working With an Editor

Planning Ahead for Editing

Writers should allocate time for editing when creating the documentation plan. The nature of the document and the schedule will determine how much editing is possible. See "Scheduling" in Appendix B, "Developing a Publications Department," for more details.

Consider these points:

Your manager should maintain an editing schedule for your writing group, which is submitted regularly to the editor assigned to your group. As your submission date or other information (such as page count) changes from the information in the documentation plan, you should let your manager know so that the updated information can be included in the group editing schedule.
