comment Can stories be “revived”?
Oh, I forgot to add: Revising is not the only way to revive a story. You can also throw out the old manuscript and write the story anew, given everything that you have since learned about how to write stories.

comment How do you call the non-writing parts of creating a text?
D'oh! I inadvertently omitted "daydreaming" from my list. I don't know where my mind was.

comment Indicating a word choice you're unsure of
Ah, I see. For situations like that, I (usually) first put some effort into finding the right word. If I can't find the right word, or in the rare situations where I don't think it's worth the time, I put a question mark in parentheses after the word. "Three troubadours(?) visited me in my dreams this morning."
