My first shift for editing at the Washburn Review was edited two articles. when I get the articles copy, I read through each of them to have a first impression.They are totally different topic, one of them is about some tips of choosing Christmas gifts for family and friends, another one is an interview article.
I took my AP style book with me when I start to edit. I think the interview articl is more hard for me to edit, because there are some sentances does not make sence to me so I need to read them several times.
I though I will use AP style book a lot, but actually I just use AP book for a little use of vocabulary and punctuation check.
