So I’m going over with for I am calling my 1.5 revision. Every page that I am editing has been edited once already. However in the case of some of those pages that first edit was several months ago and ideas I ha about the novel have evolved since then.
Here is a peek at just how massive the edits are, even after a complete pass.
I do think that my life would be easier if I could somehow learn to wtire it correctly the first time.
Of course that really isn’t possible. Aside from the spelling errors and typos that need to be found, there is the little matter that I really don’t understand my novel from my own outline. It is the process of writing the novel that teaches me what it is really about and what I really need to concentrate on.
What made sense three-four months ago is no longer the themes I am pushing.
