WRITERS GIVE THEIR REVISION STRATEGIES --
Former newspaper reporter Chip Scanlan confesses that he used to think that having to rewrite a story meant he'd failed.
The writing teacher says experience, and other writers, have taught him differently, but he still "tricks" himself into revising. He gives his nine strategies for becoming a better writer by "becoming a reviser."
These include writing the first draft earlier so he sees holes that need filling, reading and marking up his work on paper and diagnosing problems before treating them.
The site also gives a link to other writers' techniques . One newspaper reporter prints out her copy, cuts it up into paragraphs, places each on a blank sheet of paper and rewrites each. http://www.poynter.org/column.asp?id=52&aid=20864/

WINNING IDEAS FROM APEX
See top award-winning APEX entries below.
“Here is a perfect example of the benefits gained from listening to customers. When research indicated that association members felt overwhelmed by the number of eNewsletters they received, the decision was made to send one redesigned eNewsleter per week. The result was a graphically attractive, significantly improved, customized product. Another amazing element contributing to the presentation of a Grand Award, was that of recognizing that too many ads were competing with the content. Thus, the association restricted the number of ads to allow both the ads and the content to shine. All these wise decisions resulted in an open rate far in excess of industry norms.”
