How many times do you edit your work before posting it for critique on this site? I ask this because I have come to the conclusion that I don't edit my work enough before posting. I think I'm still wearing the rose coloured specs and I don't see the obvious flaws in my work. I am also interesting in hearing about the editing techniques you use. Is there a set routine you follow? Do you concentrate on story first, then sentence structure, word choice then punctuation? How do you edit? Thanks in advance. I'm trying to get a handle the best technique to use to improve my editing skills.
