As many of you know I have a classroom visit coming up where I’ll be discussing revision and it’s importance.I thought I’d take a minute today to show you some of the books I use during my revision process. Some more than others, but all are very helpful in learning the fine art of revision.
What is revision good for? Communication. As writers our job is to communicate our thoughts, our story, to our readers. Seeing as telepathy is hard to come by, we need to make sure that the story that we see in our minds is the same as the one on the page. Revision is the step required to get it there.
Over the years I’ve come across a number of books covering revision, revision techniques and tools. In no particular order, here’s a list of the books I turn to for help.
