As Wadadli Pen 2016 Deadline nears, Here are Some Tips.

Tip #16 – Again, Revise:
“Revising is part of writing. Few writers are so expert that they can produce what they are after on the first try. Quite often you will discover, on examining the complete work,  that there are serious flaws in the arrangements of the material…Remember, it is no sign of  weakness  or defeat that your manuscript ends up in need of major surgery. This is a common occurrence in all writing, and among the best writers.” – William Strunk Jr. and E. B. White (from Elements of Style), in Writer’s Digest, 2016

As you can see that’s tip #16 of the writing tips I’ve been posting to the Wadadli Pen 2016 Challenge page. I hope these tips are helpful to you teachers, writers, etc.

Don’t forget the submission deadline is February 17th 2016 to

But please, remember to check the page (read through the Frequently Asked Question, the press release, scroll down for the writing tips etc.) before submitting. I know it’s a lot to get through but you’ll be thanking me when your entry clears submission…or maybe you won’t, I don’t know; read it anyway. And this could be you!
