Essay about My Writing And Writing Style

On the other hand, if I spend a long time on a piece, it can be just as bad. Its easy to become lost in a piece after a while, and have trouble stepping back and seeing it objectively. It’s also hard to forget all of the extra context I have in my head by that point, and read it as a reader, who has little or no context about the topic. Again, having someone else read my work really helps at this point. If nothing else, it gives me a break to refresh my mind before I come back for more editing.
