What is a Manuscript Overview: It is an objective evaluation of a story idea that is fully formed with a beginning, middle, and end, but still in an early draft stage. The MO comes before LINE EDITING and COPY EDITING.

The manuscript overview saves the author time and energy, and if the author is self-published, then money in editing fees.
