Making Our Writing Sing: The Revision Process


Participate in Recyclemania

Writing takes time, talent, and persistence. Some would-be writers focus too much on a perceived lack of time, claiming they’d create great texts if they weren’t so busy with other things. Others admit to a talent deficiency, stating that "writer's block" has barred them from going back to their keyboards. Yet successful writers know that persistence is the key to their craft. We all can agree that excuses won't help us write our stories, but those who are disciplined know that committing words to paper is just the tip of the writing iceberg. While we need to prioritize the written word as the vehicle for our personal expression, we also must accept that great writing is the result of careful, persistent revision. Read more
