But, that’s why I’m here to help! It is normal to have jitters when starting a rewrite. If you don’t have them, I question you as a writer.
Rewrites, revisions can be nerve-wracking! They can be emotionally draining and you just may plain old don’t want to do them!
Yet, this is necessary.
Very rarely do you do write the exact thing you want in a rough draft. On the off chance that you have, you still need to take time to proofread for grammar and other small mistakes. A rough draft is just that—ROUGH!
The revision is the smoothing out, adding in, taking out, all the stuff that you wanted to do when you started but may not have seen that you could do! Take advantage of that! Instead of seeing the revision as a chore, see it as an opportunity! The process will go better when you do.
