A post on QT has had me thinking over the last few days about revision.
I've read the blogs, the fab suggestions on QT and blog queen Elana's tips for editing a MS in thirty days:
I also read some valuable info from a book I picked up a while back called Writing For Children. It's a nice how to guide with ideas about writing for different ages, and a nice revision checklist.
And Nathan Bransford has a revision checklist on his blog.
So how do I edit? I pick a chunk of chapters, print them off then attack them with a variety of highlighter pens and coloured pens.
I have a different colour for each area such as dialogue tags, showing v telling etc.
Yeah, I'm weird. lol.
Then there is always the suggestions of crit buddies to think about, who always manage to find something I've missed. I guess authors really are too close to their MS.
Anyway, since it seems to be a topic with various answers I'm gonna throw it out to you guys.
Much like "how do you eat a Cadbury Creme Egg" I want to know how do you edit your MS?
