Oooh, an EASY editing tip?! Yes, they DO exist!
Cut the BIG bunks first. Don’t dither over tiny words here and there. Save it for the very end.
Slice out the big chunks first. Quickly scan your copy and see where you start thinking about what you’ll have for dinner tonight. Clearly, it ain’t keeping YOUR attention… so it’s not gonna hold anyone else’s.
That can be a sign that the section isn’t really ‘hawt’ and it would be better on the cutting room floor.
Try this and let me know how it goes!
