Written: Editing

Editing polishes your piece until it’s squeaky clean and ready to publish. Here are some things I do to make sure my writing is ready to publish and something I’m proud to put my name on.

  • Read the piece out loud. You hear every awkward phrasing when you read it aloud.
  • Put a star next to any question you raise in your piece, do you answer it? 
  • Put your piece in this app to help point out any weak areas that could be improved. 
  • Don’t be afraid to include pictures – is there something easier explained in a picture?
  • Don’t have a wall of text – the shorter the paragraph the better!
  • Finally name your piece! Maybe you had a great title already from the beginning, I tend to name my articles last after I’ve gotten more familiar with it (after all my drafts). Here’s a resource to help strengthen your titles.
