Editing

As talented as you might be, you can’t be another person.

That is, you can’t look at your own work in the unbiased way another person can. It’s important to have another set of eyes to look over your writing—especially if that other set of eyes enjoys cutting clutter, simplifying sentences, and eradicating errors.
