Rewrite versus Revise versus Edit (Valerie Comer on the differences between rewriting, revising and editing, 4-11-13) On Books: Visions and Revisions (Part 1, Alison Parker, on An American Editor, 8-3-16) Alison compares a children's novella, Sara Crewe, or, What Happened at Miss Minchins Boarding School , to the novel it became seventeen years later, A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
Between the novella and the novel, Burnett "was asked to turn the initial story into a play, which began its run a couple of years before she expanded her story into a novel." Parker uses the differences between the two works to bring the concept "show, not tell" to life for creative writing students.

Comparing Mockingbird the result of two years of arduous revisions with Watchman demonstrates clearly just how important a good editor can be.
Put simply, where Mockingbird beguiles, dazzles and moves to tears as it conveys core values of empathy and human decency, Watchman horrifies with its ugly racism, even as it emotes and moralizes didactically, clunkily and shrilly." A review worth reading, which may make you curious about the early novel.
