The Writer’s Revision Handbook

Summary Points for Revising
Pages: 49


Once the writer completes his first draft, the revision process begins. Revision literally means “seeing again.” The writer looks again and again at his words and rearranges, removes and replaces them until each fits perfectly, all working together to express exactly what he intends.

This Handbook contains essential tools for use in revising. It presents concise points gleaned from dozens of writing manuals and other sources, and from practical experience derived from writing steadily for over three decades. While you can use this Revision Handbook independently of other instructional material, we suggest using it with Right Words: The Grace of Writing. However you use it, you’ll find that this easy-to-understand booklet will improve any writer’s craft.
