STOP! Don't Do It!

STOP right there in your tracks! You've written a great piece, whether it's a blog post or the next great American novel, and you're ready to publish.

STOP! Don't do it! Have your work edited first. While many writers feel this step is bothersome, it's the most worthwhile step, next to your actual writing, that you can take. An independent editor is best because they bring an objective eye to your writing.

Where can you find an independent editor? One of the best ways to find your editor is through Fiverr. Fiverr is a great no-commitment way to find your best editor. Test a few editors out on small jobs before you hire any for a bigger one. This will give you a chance to gauge their work to see if you're compatible. Not every editor is compatible with every writer. Test the waters before you plunge too deeply to make a change.

So, this is your tip for today....STOP in your tracks and hire an independent editor.

Your readers will thank you.
Write often.
Write well.
Just write.
