I'm in the middle of a revision.
I'm so excited about this version because some things have changed in my story. Some situations have gotten less confusing. Certain characters have grown.
I like to turn to the book Writing the Breakout Novel by Donald Maass. It is full of exercises to make characters more dimensional, scenes more tense and meaningful.
When I'm writing I remember this tip from a writing conference I went to.
Revision isn't about finding all the misspellings, adverbs and poor sentence structure. It is about looking at the work with a new, fresh view.
Confession: I enjoy the revision process.
Do you like revising?
