Very good advice. I always print my drafts out and walk away for a bit. Inevitably, when I pick them up again I see words I can whack and sentences I can reconfigure. It’s a journey, always…..😊
Ah yes. And let’s be clear, a journey for a Master craftswoman like you, is significantly shorter than that for the mere mortals.

Yes. Clarity. Brevity. No Weasels. All the words must carry their weight.
Yes, that’s it.
