You've finally finished writing! Nice one! Now it's time to publish your novel, print the company's catalogs for that trade fair or upload the texts to your website.
Hold on a minute... Are you sure everything is perfect?
Nobody is saying that you don’t write well or that you haven’t gone over the text so many times that you could probably recite it by heart. Despite your meticulous efforts, it is still likely that you have missed something. Spelling mistakes, misplaced commas, grammatical mismatches, unnecessary repetitions and convoluted sentences that you understand, but that no one else will be able to decipher, could still appear in your almost-perfect text. All of this can disrupt the reading rhythm and irritate your readers or customers, which is something you want to avoid.
That’s where a fresh pair of eyes comes in handy. The best writers’ works go through a few edits before publishing. Will your text be one of them?
