Copy-editing

‘Helping written work flow well, that is what copy-editing is all about.’

This is a good example of bad copy.

Being articulate when writing takes a lot of practice, and the end result is that experienced writers find it difficult to pen clumsy sentences, as above. However, we’re all guilty of attempting to be so articulate and smooth that we actually tie ourselves in knots. Copy-editing is all about helping written work flow by combating clunky writing.
