Mutt (who is not really me, but will have to do since I couldn't find a picture of Indy and Short Round together....not that Short Round is like me either, but he is funnier.): Tell me something I don't know.
Harrison: I'm trying to, kid. That first revision was your chance to take that junky first draft and craft it into something that was close to your vision...or as close as you were likely to get...alone.
Mutt: Now you're getting all confusing on me, professor. What do you mean by alone?
Harrison: Stop combing your hair and listen, will you? I'm talking about the second revision now.
Mutt: THERE'S A SECOND REVISION?
Harrison: Heck kid, sometimes there's thirteen of 'em.
Mutt: (chokes and gasps)
Harrison: That first revision, well, that was for you, the writer.
Mutt: You already said that.
Harrison: Want me to wipe that mouth right off your smirky face?
Mutt: (shakes head no.)
Harrison: The second revision...and all the revisions after that....well, kid, those are for the reader.
Mutt: The reader?
Harrison: That's what I said, kid. The reader. And the only way to know how the reader is going to navigate your text is to get one....a reader I mean. And then comes the most important part. You still listening?
Harrison: You have to listen to what the reader says. I mean, they are doing you a favor. They are telling you stuff you'd never know without them. Now, just to see if you were listening, tell me what I said.
Mutt: Er, um, first revision = for the writer, second through thirteenth revision = for the reader.
Harrison: Well done kid. You just might make it out of this
