The mostly sequential attitude toward revising a manuscript may not work for all writers.

So here’s a different take, from Barbara Linn Probst.

She considers the big-picture idea of revising to contain three aspects: reworking, refining, and revisioning.

To Probst, these three levels can interplay with each other and happen in different orders — the important thing is that you recognize which one you’re engaging in at any given time and consider whether it’s necessary … or serving as a way to avoid the others.
