Alex’s Rollanotebook Page
August 18, 2007
(I gave Alex a Rollanotebook for his birthday and look what he did to it!)
This is a scan from my notebook concerning a short prose work I’ve been perusing over the summer. It’s gone under three rewrites and three revisions.
This is the second draft of the opening paragraph along with some notes and a few drawings. Nothing special. The manuscript is a maze of scribbles scrunched between letters and surrounded in bubbles with little arrows and stuff. -Alex
D: How did you learn revision?
A: Mostly from looking at scans from other author’s notebooks to see how they revised things
I liked how Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky revised their works.
