An Easy Trick to Edit Better.

Uncategorized Aug 03, 2022

Most of us edit a few pages then stop to admire our work. After that we resume editing -- but we return to the beginning... again and again and again.

Result? You're editing the opening over and over while the rest gets short shrift.

Stop that.

Do this instead: print it out. Go through the whole thing with a pen and mark what needs attention, but don't make the changes. Just circle 'em.

When you reach the end, *then* go back and make the changes. Do it only after you've circle-marked the whole thing, not until.

Now your entire document gets serious attention, not just the top.
