Editing is about recognizing the strengths and weaknesses of text. The way you use language tells people much more than just the message you are trying to convey. Just like your clothes, the style of your language reveals a statement about you. Presenting your ideas in a clear, well-organized manner adds merit to your professionalism, and your message.
