The Long and the Short of It: Revising Your Manuscript

By Caren Stewart

The other night, I was lying in bed, ruminating on what I might write for my next posting. As I began to drift off to sleep, I thought about my husband’s hair and how it was a metaphor for the manuscript revision process. No, I wasn’t just floating in that place between consciousness and unconsciousness–let me explain.
