Okay, I have been testing out some other forums. Elite is my primary forum, but I still like to get out there to compare critique and advise.
On one forum I was told that you should not revise a poem until at least six months have gone by. I was told you cannot make a good edit if you edit quickly. I'm having a hard time swallowing that one. If you were trying to publish a book, trust me, your editor would not allow you to wait 6 months for an edit of 30 lines.
So how long do you wait to edit and why?
