WRITERS GIVE THEIR REVISION STRATEGIES -- Former newspaper reporter Chip Scanlan confesses that he used to think that having to rewrite a story meant he'd failed. The writing teacher says experience, and other writers, have taught him differently, but he still "tricks" himself into revising. He gives his nine strategies for becoming a better writer by "becoming a reviser." These include writing the first draft earlier so he sees holes that need filling, reading and marking up his work on paper and diagnosing problems before treating them. The site also gives a link to other writers' techniques . One newspaper reporter prints out her copy, cuts it up into paragraphs, places each on a blank sheet of paper and rewrites each.

HALLOWED GROUND
Hallowed Ground -- Summer 2011 -- Mary Koik, Civil War Trust, Washington, DC ... "Beautiful photo spreads, striking typography, a layout jam packed (in a good way) with photo sidebars, usefully long captions and well drawn illustrations -- the design is equally matched by well written, interesting narratives which easily hold the reader's attention."
