We all know that “revising” is an ongoing process of rethinking the paper, including reconsidering our arguments, refining our purposes, reorganizing our presentation, etc., from a critical, fresh perspective, while “editing” is a process of correcting and adapting the text of reports, articles, letters, essays, newsletters, and emails, to name a few.
Have you ever received messy, full-of-mistakes or inappropriate-toned messages? I assume your answer is “Yes”.

So, let us make sure that our text is sending the right message about us.
