My contribution to Necessary Fiction’s series on revision is up today, featuring my craft essay dubbed, “The Revision Spectrum: A Summarized Breakdown.” The essay springs from one of my favorite quotes by Flannery O’Connor, then explores the common revision scenarios I’ve encountered while drafting a few of my own short stories: “Hospice of the Au Pair,” “Teacher’s Aide,” “The Gardener,” and “Welcome, Lost Dogs.”
