Editing your own writing

Last week, I created a PDF guide that includes my 6-step process and checklists to help you edit your drafts more effectively. 

Here's an excerpt from the introduction: 

The secret to editing your work is simple: you need to become its reader instead of its writer. 
– Zadie Smith 

We're all required to write or create content fairly frequently, whether it's blog posts, papers, cover letters, or social media captions. With the relentless amount of content being published on every platform, it has become even more important to make sure that what we write and share is compelling, consistent and error-free.

This quick guide is designed to help you do just that. Editing is a part of the writing process that should never be skipped. Follow this guide step by step once you've written a draft, and use the checklists provided after each section to ensure that your writing is in great shape before it goes out into the world.
