Hollywood has portrayed Mozart as a creative freak who dashed off perfect first drafts. This is a myth. His compositions underwent extensive revisions prior to performances. As Orison Swett Marden points out, “Great writers have ever been known for their tenacity of purpose. Their works have not been flung off from minds aglow with genius, but have been elaborated and elaborated into grace and beauty, until every trace of their efforts has been obliterated.”
We must adopt the same patient, persistent, and workmanlike approach. In our meeting on October 10, poet and novelist Jennifer Givhan will guide us through the nuts and bolts of how to revise, rewrite, and reimagine our work from the inside out.
