A gym trainer will take you through your steps until you get the exercise right. I used to go the gym and the staff were there to show me how to do the exercises the proper way or best way until I got it.
In anything one does, it’s good to go through with it the right way or best way if one is not doing the procedure or process the right or best way.
In writing, touching up one’s work is the final touch on a manuscript that may mean life or death to the manuscript, if not touching up one’s work already.
The touch up is the right thing to do for a piece of writing. It’s good to check one’s work for the final brushstroke as minor things can make a big difference. A touch up is essential to the process of writing.
The intended meaning is communicated better with a touch up. Clearness and readability can be established with a touch-up. Sloppy work is transformed into clean looking work.
We may learn the touch up through the hard experience of producing work that needed more editing, even though it gets published. We may learn to do the touch up through thinking through our writing before sending it and apply the touch up sooner than later.
However one gets to the point of the touch up, a writer’s work will improve for it.
