And it means letting go of that weight, which now lives solely in our heads. Instead of weight, let’s think of depth: revisions that are either deep or shallow, measured in time and effort rather than pounds. And furthermore, let’s think about the reading experience as one of depth as well: superficial (only the latest version) or exhaustive (all the way down). In doing so we not only improve our own writing, and provide a richer reading experience; we also expose the craft of writing and editing for others to learn from.
