WRITERS GIVE THEIR REVISION STRATEGIES -- Former newspaper reporter Chip Scanlan confesses that he used to think that having to rewrite a story meant he'd failed. The writing teacher says experience, and other writers, have taught him differently, but he still "tricks" himself into revising. He gives his nine strategies for becoming a better writer by "becoming a reviser." These include writing the first draft earlier so he sees holes that need filling, reading and marking up his work on paper and diagnosing problems before treating them. The site also gives a link to other writers' techniques . One newspaper reporter prints out her copy, cuts it up into paragraphs, places each on a blank sheet of paper and rewrites each.

South Bank Corporation Annual Report 2010-2011 -- South Bank Corporation, Brisbane Australia ... "A stunning annual report, with a clean, appealing design featuring striking photo spreads on an attractive matte paper -- all combined to frame a powerful message -- the bank's good works during the previous year, and its commitment to improving environmental quality. The report, of course, prints on recycled paper and is delivered via bicycle -- a sustainable method! But our favorite feature is that selected pages in the report are printed on seeded paper. They can be torn out, planted and, with luck, and a green thumb, flowers will grow."
