Drafting and redrafting

Remember that you should write, rewrite and rewrite again.

■ A first writing is not good enough. It must be improved.

■ A second writing will expose the most obvious errors.

■ A third polishes. Better words, clearer thoughts and more apt illustrations will present themselves to the writer.

If possible, between drafts leave the piece. It is amazing what time will expose in even the most perfect prose.
