Monsters in the drawer

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
  • hyperventilating
  • 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.

Happy revising!
