Revising, Editing and Polishing

Dear Mrs. Szymanski,

Here is my revision. Am I close to being done now?

Mom's Lost Necklace

"Oh no! It's gone!" My mom was getting ready for church when she discovered that her cross necklace was missing.



Wow! Your story is wonderful. Yes! You are almost finished! There are just a few little things to help you finish up.

When you write your story amd then do second or even a third draft you are usually rewriting. Next, you edit. That is when you go through and pick sentences or scenes you want to change a little. Now you are in the last stage, polishing. To polish your story, you only fix a few little things, and I could only find a few in this story.
