I love the process of writing my children’s poems. I find myself continually going back and revising, like trying out new phrases and words. Playing around helps me grow and stretch as a writer and allows me to see things in a variety of ways. However, I sometimes wonder how much revising is too much. I often find myself changing things thinking they sound better but then going back later and changing them back. Sometimes I’m not sure which way sounds better. I guess it’s often a matter of taste, but I sometimes want to bounce ideas of others and get their opinions. Sometimes their preference doesn’t match mine and sometimes it does. I usually trust myself and go with my gut feeling.
I’d welcome other points of view on this topic.
