Below are seven principals of revision writers turn to.

Limit your time: Use a timer and keep your revision sessions short, regular and defined. Take one piece at a time and draw it, visualize it, re-see it. Work slowly, knowing you can go back to the orignional if your stratagy fails. Work on the easiest parts first. An amazing thing happens when you time your writing sessions and force yourself to stop when the timer goes off. Your mind will, most likely, come up with incredibly fresh solutions between sessions. Try it!

Sketch It, Then Write It
If you’re having trouble knowing what to revise or how to revise, try this technique: quick-sketch a scene that isn’t working for you (you don’t have to have drawing talent, stick figures are fine, you just want a visual of what is going on). Are there any pieces that are visually boring or don’t fit in with the rest of the work? Can you add something that would make the scene more relevant or interesting, or should you cut the scene? Sketching your work can help you get to the meat of your story.

Read to Get Unstuck
If you aren’t sure about a revision, and you are procrastinating, reread your favorite works. Reading excellent writing infuses you with the power to see your own work with new eyes. You’ll at the very least be able to tap into why you like writing in the first place.

Revise by Hand
Instead of revising your first draft on the computer, print out what you have written and reread it, then set the hard copy aside. Imagine or draw out your new image for this piece, and write that new section by hand, slowly, using a timer.

Don’t Start at the Beginning
Don’t start your revision with the first sentence. Start with the scene, stanza, or line that seems the easiest to resee. Start in the middle, or toward the end. Section off a few lines or paragraphs and read them aloud. What will the reader see when he/she reads this section? Could you draw it? If so, move on. When you come to a piece that can’t easily be pictured, stoop. Draw out or spend some time imagining/listing the sensory images, and then resee your piece. The opening is always the hardest, so save that for last. Are there ways you can create patterns that will link the beginning to the ending? The beginning should be the last part you revise because it is best reseen in concert with the ending.

Delete, Don’t Fix
After a certain point, it’s really hard to make something work when it just isn’t. Pieces that just don’t work can be abandoned. If something is boring, it really is ok to just say goodbye! Life is short. Choose to revise only the pieces you love, care about, and feel invested in. Revising good writing is much more effective than laboring over duds.

Play with Questions
How do you revise for insight? Revising for depth and insight is the hardest thing a writer does. Try interviewing your writing by asking questions of a piece of writing in order to see what it is you have done: what are the obvious connections already in the work. Here are some questions you can ask yourself of your writing:

What am I not telling them that I should be telling them?
What do you want to say more about?
Are there secrets I’m keeping?
Do you feel I’m being fair and telling the whole story?
Are there any parts here that aren’t really true?
