Why don’t more writers revise? — Frequent Questions

Q: Why don’t more writers revise their work?
A: Revising your work requires reading it.

I have a theory about that:

They’re scared.

They’re scared of diving in and discovering just how very bad their first draft is. Or they’re scared of making their work even worse.

Yes, revising your work does require reading it.

Do it anyway.

If you’re secretly attached to your files full of unfinished writing …if you enjoy collecting rejection emails…if you worry that effective marketing would generate too much income for your business DO NOT register for my VIP class on Revision.
