Writers Workshop: Revising (ARMS) & Editing (COPS)

Revising written work with ARMS. Love this, so effective. We used to use this acronym at Sylvan to teach revising writing assignments. For editing, remember COPSS (capitalization, organization, punctuation, sentence structure, spelling). More

Laurie Halse Anderson talks about the revision process and how no one sees her work until at least the fifth draft. Good tips for writers!

A good reminder. Sometimes you can't help but want it to be perfect, but then you realize that it's just the first of many drafts. For now you are laying down the foundations of something beautiful and new. Later you edit and revise it into something greater than before.
