A-Z: The "R"s of Revision

1. Start with a Rough draft.
2. Relax for a while so the story can "Rest."
3. Return to the Rough draft and Reread it.
4. Remove the parts that don't work, including any Redundancies.
5. Retool the good parts until they glow like Rubies.
6. Recruit Reviewers and Receive their advice graciously.
7. Repeat until the story is Ready!

Wow, you managed to get a lot of R's in there :-) I'm still on the Relax part...

Very clever 'R' post Sandra. Great tips too.

Let it rest before revision is very important. So true.
