Chapter 16. A Note on Editing

Macro and micro editing are important parts of the technical writing process. Without proofreading, a document is likely to seem hastily prepared. If carefully proofread, a document will not have its information obscured or its readers distracted by errors.

Many writers often take this final part of the technical writing process to be the only part of the process and, as a result, become inhibited in their writing fluency and obsessed with matters of correctness. Although correctness is important, remember that there must be a well-organized document to edit in the first place. If you understand the demands of your situation and select the appropriate design strategy, then the editing process will allow you to refine your writing so that it will be free of distracting errors.
