A BETTER WRITER


 


From Joshua Henkin’s article in September’s Writer’s Digest, Your Goal: Become a Better Writer.

 “A writer risks failure every time she sits down to write, whether she’s just beginning or is already widely published.”


 “Revision is just that – re-vision: seeing something anew – and that involves listening carefully to what people tell you and then making it your own. To my mind, real revision is what separates the men from the boys and the women from the girls.”

You are already an excellent writer, imho, but it's good to keep striving for improvement regardless.

Read your article in SOUTH JERSEY MOM on forgiveness today at the orthodontist's office - well done, you!!
