Academic Success, Perfectionism, Writing

Striving in Writing

“Revision is a search for closer and closer approximation of the truth you seek…you will never reach the perfect text you’re striving for, because it exists only in fantasy.  What matters is that you work your way toward that text, toward the truest narrative that you can achieve, one that speaks clearly and fluently to your chosen audience” (Bolker, 1998, p. 127).
