After writing a piece and revising it, myself as well as I’m sure others feel that the piece is “finished.”After writing and and re-reading it I find it very difficult to go back into a piece and to find flaws or to take out parts of it. I feel that the piece has been written in my own way and that by taking out parts I will in a sense be removing myself from the piece. What is your advice for how to go about changing and revising a piece without feeling that you are removing so much as it is not your piece anymore? Also what do you use as your drive to continually go back to a piece and to fix it over and over again? When do you feel that a piece is entirely finished, and how do you know it is finished?
This is a small representation of the high-quality writings you’ll find in every issue of TIFERET.
