Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis from Amazon:
How to Edit Yourself and Why You Should

This is not a book about why you don’t need an editor. This is a book about first editing your own work to the best of your ability, so that when you hand your manuscript over to an editor, it is as free of placeholder writing, as devoid of verbal crutches, as lean and clean as you know how to make it.

Good editing by the writer—before an outside editor ever sees your work—can make the difference between an okay book and a good one, or between a good book and a great one.

My Review:
This book was extremely interesting and helpful.  It was an inspiring read for upcoming/potential writers. 

Bridget McKenna was born in Las Vegas, Nevada, and has lived in a fair number of places since, including southern, central, and northern California, west Texas, northern Illinois, Seattle, and London.

In addition to writing, Bridget practices hypnotherapy, reads avidly (science fiction, fantasy, mystery, classics, and many flavors of nonfiction) and is hopelessly addicted to BBC historical dramas. She lives in Seattle, and writes for the computer games industry.
