Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Rewrites Redux

Justine Larbalestier has an excellent post on rewrites. She also covers some points on getting critiques and how to view them. She also gives excellent tips on how to rewrite, how to learn how to rewrite, and keeping track of your foibles.

She's really good with showing examples. I'm going to go a re-read it.

Hi Steve,
I found you through Todd's blog. Justine's page was great. I like the idea of listing repeat-offender words and keeping it handy during sentence-level editing. Thanks for the great link.

Thanks for stopping by, l.a. mitchell. Yeah, I've been thinking of starting my own list.

First word would be "back." My characters are always going back, getting back, turning back, etc.
