Edit Your Work

 If you’ve arrived at this page, you must take your writing seriously.

This part of the writing process is so critical to your crafting, that you should expect periodic updates to this post. 

 NB. Self-editing your work is necessary.  However, before your work has been accepted by a publisher (and definitely if you are self-publishing), work with a professional editor.

Don’t be in a hurry to publish!! Remember, once it’s out in the public domain, it’s too late to check over.  Your typos, errors, omisions etc. will be there for you/the world to see/critique/shred to bits.
