George Saunders on Storytelling

What I love most, I think, about this short video is the way he emphasizes the importance of technicalities and editing in written storytelling. “Revision is a form of active love.” And, “that wasn’t done because I wanted to write a compassionate story… it was done because those sentences were bothering me.”
