The consistency tip is a great one - and something that I haven't seen suggested for editing before. I always enjoy reading books and articles that have a consistent flow to them, making them easier to understand and allowing me to become more involved with the characters or the facts. Thank you for taking the time to write these tips.
I would add one more thing. Listen to the words. Use a reader program, it doesn't have to be a great voice, but hearing the pace and words will often bring me attention to something I would have glossed over when reading from paper. I use NaturalReader - free and kind of robotty voice, but I can run the program and keep the word document open to make changes as they come up.
Some excellent advice. I have to agree that it is much easier to edit on paper than on the screen. Why this might be the cast I still haven't figured out but it is true.
