Check It Out!

Pull out your favorite pen, pencil, or marker and join us this month as we discuss “Self-Editing Techniques.”

Just as each writer has his/her own unique writing style, we all have techniques we use to edit our own work. Here are a few reasons why Self-Editing is important:

1.      Clarity – Checking our work periodically assures that our ideas have proper flow, our sentences are complete and not fragmented, and our thoughts are well written.

2.      Organization – Self-editing helps us stay on target with our main idea by keeping our points and paragraphs in a manageable order.

3.      Professionalism – When we self-edit we show we care about the quality of work we produce. We want to stand out to editors and publishers in a positive way by looking and sounding like we know what we are doing.

We hope you will benefit from the tips and techniques we will share throughout the month. Thanks for dropping by!
