A couple weeks ago, I shared the “how to face the blank page” ideas of my writers group. At our last meeting, we talked about the revision process for fiction. I wanted to offer my blog readers some ideas on this but, well… none of the good ones were mine.
I’m afraid I have a few messy manuscripts in a figurative drawer, and my revision process involves:
- opening drawer
- making random changes
- growing confused and overwhelmed
- closing drawer
Not a method I would recommend.
Fortunately, group member and writer extraordinaire Rachelle Delaney had much more reasonable and logical advice. Better yet, she’s posted it! You can check it out on her blog.
