A golden rule! Edit before publishing. It is never a good idea to publish a manuscript without going through the editing process. Punctuation errors, mispellings, clunky sentences and so on take away from your writing. Readers will be more focused on errors than what you are actually saying. 

Editing is the process of taking something that could be good and making it good. There comes a time when your manuscript needs to go to an editor. Editing provides an opportunity to give you a different perspective of your story, however at the end of the day it is up to you how your story begins and finishes.

What is even more impressive is that this person knows what they are doing and does it skillfully. As the Features Editor for the South Sydney Herald, I can say that I have received Malakai's work with gratitude because it needs so little editing or proofreading. They write with insight and intelligence, and cover events with clarity and imagination”. Not only is Malakai competent in what they do, their capacity to relate well with others around them is a great asset.”
