Do you struggle to know how to edit your own writing? 

If so, you’re certainly not alone. 

Writing itself is a challenging task, let alone editing your own work!

As a writer and editor myself, I know how difficult it is to catch your own mistakes and read your own work objectively. For these reasons and many more, I highly recommend investing in hiring a good editor for your writing projects.

Having said this, for shorter pieces such a blog posts or articles, developing some self-editing skills and learning how to edit your own work as a first step in the process is always valuable.

When I ask writers what they need help with and what resources or topics would be most beneficial to them, I often receive responses related to improving the craft.

So . . . I finally put together a checklist of self-editing techniques to help writers learn how to edit their own work.

This list isn’t meant to be exhaustive by any means, but rather a first step to strengthen your writing before passing it on to someone else to read and review.

Do you know someone else who might benefit from this free resource?
