What does revising involve?
Writers usually have an idea of what a story, essay, or research project should be, and they polish their presentation of that idea in the revision stage. Revising can involve:
changing the organization of ideas in a paper
critically analyzing and improving the ideas and information
checking the structure, arguments, logic, flow, and content of the work, which involves adding, deleting, or reworking text.
