I am at the tail end of a One Story course on self-editing your short stories. I’ve taken the material presented and some items from the discussion threads and turned them into a kind of checklist of things to look for when editing your fictional works.
You can find the like to a PDF of the current checklist on the “Write Minded” page where it says “Self-editing Checklist”. It will likely get updated, so if you find it useful, you might want to check back now and then for a revised edition!

Fantastic list! I’ll certainly be using it.
I’m so glad you think it is useful! I also very highly recommend those little online courses at One Story. I’ve taken two, now, and they have both been excellent.
