Editing TrickEditing is a bitch. Iโ€™ve written about the differences betweenediting and revisingbefore. But my dear friend Alirecently taught me one of the best, most practically useful lessons Iโ€™ve ever learnt when it comes to editing.

See, for a long time, I wrote, linearly, and then when I finished, I went back to the start and edited.

Thatโ€™s good. But no matter how many times I did it, I still found a shit-tillion mistakes. Which resulted in a sort of crazed, goggle eyed, fuzzy haired โ€“ Iโ€™m going to commit arson on my manuscript โ€“ type look. It wasnโ€™t pretty, my hairs curly enough thanks.

So, I listened to Ali and started tweaking the method to suit me. Iโ€™m going to share this editing trick with you, and hopefully it will help you to clean up your scripts too.
