I know a lot of aspiring authors who think writing is easy. They dabble in writing under the illusion that they can write a great work anytime they choose to. This attitude will forever condemn them to the ranks of the aspiring.
Fortunately we seem to have writers with more fortitude than that at Review Fuse. I reviewed a first chapter today that exemplifies how an author should write:
Books aren’t written — they’re rewritten. Including your own. It is one of the hardest things to accept, especially after the seventh rewrite hasn’t quite done it. — Michael Crichton
The story I reviewed was titled The Distance of the Heart by peacemusictwloha13. This young author has rewritten this chapter several times and submitted it for review at least 3 times. This chapter has transformed from a fairly dull story about a day in the life of a teen to an engaging chapter that leaves the reader wanting for more. If you look over the various reviews of and revisions to this story you will be able to see how she transformed this work by rewriting it several times.
