If you find yourself trying to correct your writing as you work on a first draft, chances are you’ll stall out in mid-sentence while waiting for the perfect word to show up on the page. How do you know your first draft is ready for revision?
You can use recall to build a piece of writing, as if you’re in the moment. Use each of the senses and recall the smells, sights, sounds of an experience. This will bring your writing to life.
If you intend to share your words with others, I suggest you edit them in some form! It doesn’t matter what genre you write in, or who your audience might be; editing is essential .
