Depends on the quality of the writer...if it's a decent writer, editing is
always easier (at least for me!)

If it's a writer that needs some improvement, sometimes I think it'd be
more time effective to write the content myself than write out all the
reasons for my edits. I try to give reasons in the feedback so that they
don't make the same kind of writing choice again.
