A Year of Yes: I’m as much a rewriter as a writer

“A good book isn’t written; it’s rewritten.” ~Phyllis A. Whitney

There is an excitement in crafting something from a blank page, but I will tell you that I’m much more excited to add the layers of revision once the bones are set. To me there is something very special about the furthering of a vision that makes me love rewriting more than I love writing. I work very hard to get through that first phase quickly. With the track laid and the outline in front of me, that’s when my creativity really takes off. I’ve learned to see revision not as a necessary evil but as an old, dear friend who helps me put the pieces together so that my stories can be shared and heard.

I'd love to know what you think of this post! Please leave a reply and I'll get back to you in a jiffy! ~ CRA
