O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.

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.
