Start with the assumption that your work can be improved
The biggest mistake writers make is assuming that once they have submitted a piece of writing, that is finished… and perfect. This assumption sets the writer up for a frustration and anger when it is returned with a request for revisions. It can be helpful to approach your writing from the point of view there is always room for improvement.
