Chimera Critiques has a new site. Please go and visit these lovely ladies. They have helped me a bunch and they are so awesome.
So in my never-ending revision phase, I finally gave in to using post its. I have revised eleven chapters, but they still need some work. Some need to go and I have to add some things. I printed out the first eleven chapters to see the words in print. Sometimes reading on my laptop makes my eyes a little crazy. I think I'm freaking out a little because I need to have a good writing session. I need to just sit down and have my MCs flow through me.
In the spirit of reading the first eleven chapters in print, I decided to also do a story board--well my own version. I'm going to briefly describe the chapter on a post it and lay it out. I know most of you who are experienced are saying, "It took you how long to realize this." Remember, I'm slow at some things.
Hopefully, this will help the beginning because I have so much more to cover in my story. I sort of get overwhelmed when I think about.
What are your most effective revision methods?
If you are revising, how are your revisions coming along?
Another short post today, because the kids are fighting and my mind is mush.
I'll post the recap of Writing the Next Line on Friday. Have a great day!
