Love it or hate it, editing is an important part of every writer’s role. If you’re like me, 75% of time spent on a manuscript will be refining, be it through rewrites, edits, proofreading, or tweaking after feedback.

Today at When Readers Write, I’m blogging about The Writer as an Editor. In my post, I share seven helpful editing tips I’ve learned in my experience as a writer and freelance editor. Hope you stop by and let me know what your editing process looks like!

    “Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”
    —Enid Bagnold
