8.2 Editing again

Figure 4

Work on editing your story on the basis of the comments you have received. This may take you some time. That is quite normal.

Remember what was said about receiving feedback:

  • In assessing comments you receive from others on your work you may wish to rewrite your story. You may wish to tweak it a little or just leave it as it is. You may choose to accept some comments and reject others.
  • It’s important to keep a balanced attitude when receiving comments about your work. Always remember that some of it will be useful, but some of it won’t. You are the final arbiter of what you take on board and what you reject.
  • Remember that receiving comments from others just helps speed up the editing process.
