Revision Can Give You Grief

Via Mandy Schoen: A post about The Five Stages of Revision. It’s something that we don’t always talk about much, but revising, especially revising when you thought you were all done, can be tough! To say it with a lyric, give yourself time, love, and tenderness. Time to get some distance and get over the soul part of writing and back to the business part. Love: love for your story, and love for making it the best it possibly can be. And, finally, tenderness–do what you need to do to make it easier. Take a bath. Eat some chocolate. Dance to loud music. Then grin about how lucky you are and revise that puppy!
