On Revision

At the recent writers workshop that I attended, Ann Dee Ellis did a session on revision. She gave us a handout with some awesome quotes. I thought I’d share a few:

“The beautiful part of writing is that you don’t have to get it right the first time, unlike say, a brain surgeon. You can always do it better, find the exact word, the apt phrase, the leaping simile.” -Robert Cormier
