When you have spent hours slaving over a piece of writing until it is just right, the idea of letting someone else read, let alone edit it before publication might sound crazy. However, PR Fuel have given a few great reasons why you should allow a second (and even a third!) party to review your work.
- Getting a second or third opinion can help show anything that you might have missed or hadn’t considered.
- Spending a lot of time on something can make you to too close to it and you become blind to its flaws. Hand it over to someone else who can look at it with fresh eyes.
- When you write an article it can be difficult to have a strictly neutral point of view. Getting a second or third opinion can show up any bias or opposing opinions you may have missed.
- A second opinion is a chance to spice up your writing – your peers might be able to think of the perfect concluding sentence, or a clearer way of phrasing something.
When you next write an article, pass it on to your peers and see what they have to say. You may surprise yourself and discover just how much stronger a piece can be when more than one person reads and edits it. Two heads will always be better than one.
