15. How good do you want this to be?

There’s a famous saying by a famous writer.

 

 

There is no good writing, just good re-writing.

Robert Graves

 

 

Nobody writes brilliant perfect stuff, straight off.

That’s what this page is about. Revising. Polishing. Correcting.

You know this.

The more times you go over the essay the better it’s going to be.

Then again, that’s really up to you.

Over time, I’ll be putting up some tips about revising. They’ll be about grammar and expression (the way you say things), and about making things easy and pleasant and un-boring to read.

But really, this stuff is everywhere — on the net and in books. It’s there if you want it.

That’s all for now. I’m leaving it at that. The rest is up to  you.
