These are the seasons of emotion and like the wind they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion - I see the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient, quotient - Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall.
It's just a little rain, oh yeah

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.
