    Truth be told:

    There is nothing called amazing writing. All you have are rewrites, rehashes. And the marketing world is squeezing the last drop out of it – scraping, compiling, re-structuring, rewriting, repackaging, polishing, publishing – rinsing and repeating.

    Luckily – you can give birth to epic writing through rewriting. Even the big-name writers swear by it, which is why imposter syndrome continues to be a thing.

    In order to craft epic stuff:

    Take what you already have, restructure, and keep polishing until it feels the X factor.

    Let's put this sentence under the microscope:

    "He helped me with the whole process."


    Simple and crisp? Yes. Can be bettered? Absolutely.

    Feast your eyes here now:

    "He grabbed me by the hand and walked me through the process step by step."


    Notice the vibe? The 'oomph'? That's the North Star – embrace that.

    When you're firing such sentences, people race to your next lines. And that's the recipe to keep the readers glued – fighting and sparking attention on every sentence.

    All that said, don't buy into the dream of rewriting being easy -- that's a complete myth. Invest the time and respect it deserves, and you will master it too.

    Until next time.
