I’m in the midst of some frustrating revision right now–two stories giving me headaches and another taunting me from the shadows, though I did pull off a long but good revision of a novel excerpt last week–so this new post from Jamie Grove on revision hell is well timed. Wonder if Jamie actually saw my request a few days ago for more frequent posts at How Not To Write.
I’ve written on this idea before myself, but if you want the gist, Jamie is making a case for knowing when the quit revising. But, as before, you don’t want the gist, because then you’d miss out on all the cool quotes from Mark Twain Jamie includes. So go read the post in its entirety.
