How to Edit a Novel

Mood/Music Monday

How to edit a novel:

  1. Pour your heart, soul, blood, sweat, tears, empathy, imagination, hurt, love, loss, joy and humor into the first draft of your manuscript.
     
  2. Recognize that what you just wrote is complete and utter shit.
     
  3. Rewrite. Delete. Repeat.
