Person #1: Wow, you’re a reviser? A published reviser??
Person #2: Yeah. I’ve revised five books now.
Person #1: Oh my god!! I can’t believe I’m actually talking to a published reviser!! How glamorous is that?
Person #2: Well, it’s hard work actually. I put a lot of time into my revisions.
Person #1: But to see your revisions on the shelf? What is that like?
Person #2: I’ve been revising since I was twelve, so…. it’s kind of a dream.
Person #1: Wow. Aren’t all revisers super rich?
Person #2: Not really. You’d be surprised at how little revisers make. I still have a day job, though of course the dream is to be a full-time reviser.
Person #1: You know… I’ve always thought everyone has one revision in them. Someday I’m just going to sit down and revise my memoir.
Person #2: Well… revising isn’t that easy. You don’t just sit down and revise, you should really study the craft.
Person #1: Oh nonsense, how hard could revising a book be?
Person #2: Would you look at that, my drink is empty. I’d better head to the bar. Nice meeting you. Good luck with that revision.
