Question: What does it take to revise one’s written work?

Answer/Quote: “What was significant wasn’t the recognition of patterns or habits and their rhetorical strengths or weaknesses, but rather, in order to undertake that analysis, I had to look at my writing as something worth analyzing as an object worthy of study. When I began to think of my writing as something other than a transaction between teacher and student, I began to give the craft the attention it deserved.” P. 494.

Comment: When it counts, students will revise. RayS.
