Write > Revise > Rinse > Repeat

In chapter 8, Kawaski writes on the importance of editing. This immediately struck me as something I need to read, because, admittedly--I am often a poor editor of my own work. It took me until junior year of college to concede that I needed to give myself a day between finishing a draft and editing and reworking it. My beginning stages as a writer were marked (frustratingly) by trying to produce final draft product on the first draft. It seems obvious now, but no matter how good a writer a person is-- things will not come out publisher-ready the first time around.
