New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Editing is a necessary part of any writing assignment. When you edit what you wrote, your work improves. This is especially noticeable when you are dealing with an essay. 

Proofreading and editing an essay may seem like a boring job, but everything becomes easy if you approach it in an organized way. Do not forget that there is no need to rush here. It is better to edit your work in a consistent manner or contact an essay editing service and get professional help.

Editing steps

If you have written an essay in a text editor, remember about its built-in checkers:

  1. To get started, use the spell checker to reveal the most obvious errors and correct them at once. 

  2. Next, use your text editor to check grammar and discover grammatical errors. Here you can find some issues related to punctuation, sentence length and structure, utilization of tenses, etc. Refer to your knowledge while changing something. 

Upon completing these steps, it is time to proofread manually. Print the text out since errors are better seen on paper than on a computer screen. Start with the main points:

  • Is the text clear and easy to understand? 

  • Does the content correspond to the main topic? If it does not, the statement may need to be reformulated to reflect the content. 

Check the composition:

  • Make sure your intro is compact and well structured. This is not just about expressing your opinion. You set a tone in this part, and the text should correspond to it.

  • Each paragraph should be linked to the topic. Take away all sentences that do not serve this aim. Transitions between paragraphs have to be smooth. 

  • The conclusions should reflect your key statement. This is the last thing the reader sees and the main point they will remember.

Useful hints

When proofreading the content, you have to go through spelling, grammar, and punctuation again - manually. A text editor will not notice everything. Carefully check subject-verb agreement, tenses, plurals, cases, parts of sentences, their sizes, and the use of commas.

Read the text aloud after proofreading. Pause where you have punctuation marks. This will help you understand the rhythm. 

If possible, have someone read your text and suggest how it can be improved. If there is no one to help you, you will have to do it yourself. Considering that you have already seen the text many times, it is better to put it aside for a couple of days and then reread it again. 

Do not forget about sticking to a certain number of words specified for the essay. For more complex tasks, it is advisable to write an outline first. Refer to the plan when editing to know for sure that you have covered all the points. Check your spelling and grammar one last time using a text editor. If you have time, read it over again before sending it. 

Always leave enough time for editing when writing an essay, taking into account deadlines. Also, keep in mind that professional essay editors are always in touch and ready to assist you.
