Pre-edit

verb; derivation
To casually look over for mistakes while in the process of constructing a rough draft. Possible reason used: The teacher wanted to impress upon the students the importance of revision. She thought that revision was so important that the students should not only write a rough draft, revise it into a final and edit the final, but they should revise the rough draft while it is in process. “Pre-edit” comes from the bound, prefix morpheme “pre-“ meaning 'before' and the free morpheme “edit” meaning 'to revise, to make better'.
 
You should pre-edit your paper while you are writing it.
Etymology : Composed of the morphemes “pre-“ and “edit”.
Source : teacher to students (sentence not exact, but the general connotation is the same as the teacher said)
