Today you are going to edit and improve your work.
Re-reading is such an important part of writing but we sometimes miss out.
Best practice is to write a couple of sentences, re-read, edit and polish as you go.
✓ Does it fulfil its purpose and make sense?
✓ Should some of the sentences be rewritten or tightened?
✓ Are there secretarial errors: spellings, punctuation and grammar?
✓ Should the vocabulary be improved or thinned out?
