Welcome back to The Writing Apothecary Podcast and back to another new topic! Cutting down the monthly topic to bimonthly has helped clear space and allow for me to have the mental capacity to work with my creativity instead of against it. I’m appreciative to everyone for still supporting the podcast. Our bimonthly topic is: Revision and I’m so excited.
The aim is to take the lessons that are so personal and make them digestible and easy to follow.
The first thing you need, before you even start revisions, is a first draft, which means if you haven’t done that, you need to put in that work before you can start anything else. It is important to get that step out of the way. Any good writing teacher will tell you that they can’t teach you to write and I am here to tell you the same thing. I can’t teach you to write, I can give you all of the tools but you are the one who is ultimately the one who will bring it all together. A statement that one of my uni lecturers made in one of their lectures was that all writing is rewriting. And it was one of the most truest statements to date.
All writing is rewriting.
Take that in because as we look at the big picture of revision and the smaller details we need to understand that this is where the magic really begins.
