Section C. REVISE/EDIT
REVISING AND EDITING
AS A WRITER
"Revising" often refers to making major changes
in a paper after your first draft is done, and
"editing" often refers to making very small
corrections of such elements as spelling and
punctuation. However, for moderate
changes, it can be hard to draw the line between
the two functions.
This is why this section is called "Revise/Edit."
What is "revising" for one person--or in one
situation--might be "editing" for another person
or in a different situation.
So, with that sometimes clear, sometimes less
clear difference, this chapter offers a number of
methods and suggestions for revising and
editing. These processes come after
your first draft--after you have
already written something. This section offers an
explanation of basic patterns or plans for
both revising and editing. And it provides several new
and old ways of "re-hearing" and "re-seeing"
your writing in better and more accurate detail. The section has
seven chapters in it:
Symbol for Management of Sentences
Very Important Editing Needs
of Typing; Correct Patterns
List for Revising & Editing
There also is a page with several activities:
