Chapter 8: Revising and Editing a Paper

Chapter Summary

This chapter has introduced you to the steps involved in revising and editing a paper. This phase of the writing process is important and will take time. Enlist a trusted reviewer, such as a peer, and consider their feedback with an open mind. Additionally, review your instructor’s feedback on submitted/graded assignments. Pay attention to your common mistakes and document them in a journal so that you can refer to them when writing future assignments.
 

Your Writing Journey

Revising and editing your paper is a crucial part of your writing journey. This phase provides the opportunity for you to refine your writing for organization, coherence, style, tone, clarity, and conciseness. Try reading your paper aloud – you might catch errors that you would miss when reading. Finally, give yourself sufficient time to receive and reflect on feedback. Remember, this is a learning journey.
