Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis.

Ernest Hemingway once said to F. Scott Fitzgerald:

“I write one page of masterpiece to ninety-one pages of shit. I try to put the shit in the wastebasket.”

Editing is something that has been largely forgotten. It’s un-hip, these days when anything goes. So those who study and learn and practice editing have a powerful advantage.

Skillful editing isn’t always after the fact. Editing can happen right when you’re writing. Self-editing, or live editing, is a powerful thing. You can actually shape your writing just as you do when you’re singing in the shower and you shape your melody or voice.
