If you really want your book/poem/script/thesis/etc. to succeed, you have to do multiple revisions.
If you truly want to write something worth publishing and worth reading and enjoying, then you have to put in the hard work. Some people find writing easier than revision, some people thing revision is way easier. It all depends on you, but you’ve got to do both!
