100 Words 019

Historically I’ve found it difficult to revise and create second drafts of my writing. Usually when I have something I want to write about, I will type it out stream-of-conscious style in one sitting. I fix it up for spelling and grammar, but I do little else. And to this point in life that has worked fine for me. This 100 Words series has been helping me work on this problem. With the limitation of exactly one hundred words in place, I’ve had to be very judicious in editing what I’ve written—carefully removing unnecessary words and sentences.
