Why Is Revision so Hard?

Check out this enlightening guest post on Fiction Notes by Carrie A. Pearson, author of A Warm Winter Tail

Why is revision so hard?  She says it’s because it “disturbs our emotional core.”

How can we get around that?  We basically have to reframe our brains!  Imagine that.  So say it with me:  My writing isn’t wrong.  I’m not wrong.  But in the end, I must do what is best for the piece.  Dig deeper!  Find the gem and trust that you will feel it when you see it on paper.
