NOTE ABOUT LAST CLASS'S ASSIGNMENT IN CASE YOU WEREN'T THERE OR NODDED OFF, OR IN A SELF-PROTECTIVE MOVE AGAINST COMPLETE BOREDOM, DELIBERATED FILTERED OUT MY PSEUDO-COMMUNICATIVE RAVINGS

We disusseed discuddwd discusd  Last class, the subject was revision. We did a number of writing activities based on revision. The assignment is two-fold. The first part of the fold (like cuffs on khakis) is based on revision.

1. Choose 1-2 pages from your novel-in-progress. Try to edit the excerpt to be half as long as you originally wrote it. It is remarkable how much you can leave out and still convey what you want. In fact, leaving out many connectives, descriptions, or elaborations often involves the reader more, makes the writing have more energy, and moving in a more dynamic way. Try it, you might find that you like it.

2. Ok, so this doesn't involve you doing revision in the beginning. Choose a short 2-5 page excerpt from your novel-in-progress and submit it to me. I will read it and offer editorial prognostications and pontifications which you may consider in revising the passage.
