Whew, I know, that was a long text pic. But for the past few weeks, I’ve been seriously considering doing this – essentially a rewrite – instead of the initial first round of self-editing I’d planned.
It’s a bit overwhelming to think of printing my manuscript out in its entirety (it’s going to be 300+ pages easily) and then sit down and rewrite it. But when I read the comments on this post (I found this through Pinterest), everyone seems to swear that it’s an amazing thing to do for a book.
So, I think I’m going to try it. I’m going to follow the editing schedule I already set up for my first round of self-editing (1 chapter every 3 days, beginning November 11th) and see how it feels. If it’s terrible and I hit a wall, I’ll just revert back to plan A. But, on the chance that it really is as magical as everyone says it is, I’m giving it a chance.
Wish me luck.
