Part 2 provides time to analyze your strengths and work on the areas you need to strengthen, per EDITS category.

Applying the EDITS System, you'll know WHAT editing you need to do WHERE, WHY you need to edit that passage, and HOW (multiple options that fit your writing style) to make that passage stronger.
