on revising

Lately I found myself involved into writing.

And I have been often cought into the vicious cycle of revising my (or other’s) text without really understanding how to do it properly and when to stop.

I want to summarize some of the advise I found on the web.

I put it here for me to find it again and share.

Let’s first paraphrase the famous grook from Piet Hein:

Well, it’s plain
and simple to express.
revise and revise and revise again,
but less and less and less.
I found an interesting post by Brian Marick.
(And for now I reformat it here for my own use. But I will revise it later ;-)

 How do you find what needs revision?
