"I try to leave out the parts that people skip."
Best revising advice ever! If people are going to skip it, take it out. Of course, it's also paired with the understood Put in the parts people want to read.
Ahh. If only it were so simple.
But I don't know-- maybe it is that simple. Maybe the challenge lies in knowing which parts people will want to skip. And once you know that, it's as simple as leaving out those parts.
What do you think? Simple or not so simple?
And do you know what makes you think better? Staring at cookies! (Right? I know it totally helps me.)
