PE Prose Basics: Revise and Edit
Prose Basics Week is winding down now and hopefully you've learned a lot from the brilliant past articles. But, there's more to writing than just getting that first draft done, isn't there? That's where the next big crucial step comes in: revision. The Art of Revising: Revision is such a huge topic to cover, especially since there are many ways to go about it. You can do self-edits, which always are a good first step, or you can get outside revisions from peers. Both are good ideas to really get your work to be top notch.

Hello and welcome to our August feature! It's hard to believe that summer is nearly over, but we've got the perfect way for you to enjoy what's left: 16 pieces of deviantART prose and a new Published Work, care of your fellow community members.

We would also like to hear one final "Hurrah!" for our former Gallery Director, GeneratingHype, who returns to the ranks of Lit Seniors as of today. We're sure he'll continue to serve the community as steadfastly as always, but if you've a moment to spare, do stop over to his little corner of dA and thank him for all that he has done during his six-month tenure as GD.

GeneratingHype is the Creator and Doomlord Commander of the WordCount Project.
