Warm-Up Activity

This warm-up activity helps you prepare for revising your work, which in effect, is like self-criticism. Ouch. To ease the painful process of revising your own work, repeat the following phrases out loud if you are alone. If people are near by, write them down.

  • Even Shakespeare revised his prose.
  • Great artists, including Leonardo Da Vinci, sketched before they paint.
  • Martha Stewart updates her décor.
  • Revision is essential to the development process.
