“Of course, a writer’s life is half revision,” I immediately think as I see the John Irving quote above.  We work, we write and rewrite as we search and search for the perfect word.  Even after finishing a piece of writing, we still look for words that we can revise.   The ways our writing could be improved suddenly jump off the page and glare at us begging to be revised once the publish button has been pushed.
