REVISION 101 with Kimberly Griffiths Little

I loved, loved, loved The Healing Spell, by Kimberly Griffiths Little. A middle grade book I couldn't put down.
So when I came upon her article on Writeoncon and her advice on revision, titled All the Things or REVISION 101, I read, highlighted, and made little stars all over it.

I hoped never to forget these important keys things writers need to be aware of as they begin the revision process.

Sewing and Writing, Ripping Out the Seams

Giving credit to Teresa Coltrin for her interesting comparison of sewing and the revision process. This Journaling Woman's four examples in  Ripping Out the Seams  helped me revisit some problem areas of my own.

It so works for me.

And how I love her Mark Twain quote!
“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is … the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.” —Mark Twain
