Ive read a lot of books on editing, as well as writer’s market books on the different ways that writers edit and write their content (whether it be books, blog posts or articles). I’ve learned that every writer / author has a different approach to writing, but when it comes to editing a fresh eye is usually best – which makes sense.
Personally, I write a first draft (which is usually a mess) and, depending on my time, I put it aside for 20 minutes, an hour, a day (depending on my time) and then come back to it – edit it and do the same thing once more. The fresher the eyes the better my content, I find. And the more time I spend editing, of course, the better the content.
