We were recently advised, when it comes to your to-do list, to handle the boulders first versus the pebbles.

In other words, take on the big tasks before you wear yourself out with all the little ones.

(And in still more words ... quit procrastinating the hard stuff by focusing on lower-priority items!)

And now today, courtesy of a guest blogger on The Creative Penn, we have a new rock metaphor.

Editor Harrison Demchick opens his four tips to revising your first draft by reminding you that revising isn’t just tossing pebbles in a stream.

Sure, you’ll need to smooth out a few sentences or paragraphs, but revising often — not always, but often — entails structural or bookwide changes.

Read the rest of Demchick’s advice on Joanna Penn’s website.
