When Are You Done Editing? A 5-Point Blueprint for (Recovering) Perfectionists

  1. Most of this work is already taken care of by Grammarly. The pro version is even better at picking spots. Nonetheless, an easy checklist to follow. Cheers!

  2. You definitely have it right with starting with high level edits and working your way down to the smaller adjustments. Writing is not like talking. There is a process that you need to follow and editing is crucial. A good first draft is only that, a draft. The edit or edits is when you really have to go to work. I agree with Hammad, that we should all be using some type of editing software. My pick is Pro Writing Aid for copywriting and AutoCrit for creative writing.

  3. I use grammarly most of the time, but when I’m done proofreading once or twice, I pick out more errors (even after using grammarly). And thanks for this superb post, perfect copies breed excellence.

  4. This is actually an area that I’ve not put that much thought to in the past. I’m implementing your tips immediately! So so good! Thanks for sharing!
