“To write is human, to edit is divine.”- Stephen King
Everybody can write. That’s the absolute truth but your level of editing skills will make or mar your writing.
When we pour out our hearts on paper we must always remember that it is a first draft and no matter how good it looks, it can be re-written to become much better.
It is only amateur writers that would write and not bother to check for typos, punctuation and clarity of ideas in any piece. Failure to do so will affect the quality of your work and how you are perceived as a writer.
Writers are detailed and diligent people. Don’t give your readers a wrong impression about you because of the quality of your work. When next you write, take out time to look carefully and edit where necessary!
