Living with a children's author isn't as easy as it looks!

Five Word Friday

Today’s five words are about revision. First of all, it’s not a collision so nobody gets a headache or flips upside down. Revision is about making a perfectly good story better.

1. Improve

2. Cut

3. Add

4. Describe

5. Rearrange

6. Change

7. Show more

8. Tell less

9. Explain

10. Don’t explain too much

Revision is difficult.  So is counting to 5.

  1. OMG – this is so perfect…even if someone doesn’t know how to count to five. I am definitely passing this along. have a fabulous day!

  2. I always try to tell less Cupcake – it’s not as easy as it sounds 🙂

    • I know what you mean, Bassa. Telling less sounds easy – Till you’re trying to say the mailman is coming. Then you needs to tell lots and lots and lots of things to get the message across. I mean THE MAILMAN! It’s terrifying!

      Love and licks and lots of barking,
      Cupcake

  3. Maybe you’re seeing double. Or is that too much math? 🙂
    Cute pic, Cupcake. Write on, mom.
