people believe that revising involves a recursive honing
of ideas and parts of the paper; that is, the writing process
becomes a continual time-loop of invention and refinement.
Another group of writers and writing instructors advocate
an understanding of revision as a process through which
one becomes aware of one's strengths and weakness and develops
strategies for honing those strengths and eliminating the
weaknesses. Others argue that editing
and revising are intertwined in a mission to improve a writer's
message on several levels, be that conceptual, organizational
or mechanical. These links are offered as sites from
which any writer can build a better understanding of what
revision offers as well as different strategies.
