Daily Quote


I live for the rewrite. My process is to write like mad, letting everything fall onto the page. It marinates while I grab a cup of coffee. Then halleluiah, I get a do-over. Or two or three or however many it takes until I like it. It kinda makes me feel sorry for the brain surgeons.

What are your feelings about editing and rewriting?


Keep on writing.

  1. depends really. if its a short story or flash fiction i don’t do much of a rewrite but when its my article for submission i will really pour over it. i take the most time if its for a publication. but like you i do let the words fall out and then edit, i will edit everything at least once. sometimes when editing a new idea takes shape, that is the best part of writing

  2. I edit as I go. Periodically, or when I start up the next writing session, I edit what I’ve already written and then move on to new prose. And I always wind up with a weaker ending than the rest of the piece 😣
