One of the most profound things that I have learned in CreComm thus far is that editing is a skill that anyone can be good at. No, seriously.
As it turns out, my poor editing skills are a result of poor time management and laziness. (Huh, who knew?!)
Good editing, whether it's print, video, audio, or any other form, is a time commitment. (Going over the piece of work a number of times with a metaphoric fine-toothed comb.) Yes, it may take longer to produce your work, but the quality results will be evident.
This is something that I need to work on.
