Thanks for a great post, . I have tried the blank page and bc im stuck have written the same story. Now I’m revising with earlier advice: list what I like & don’t like and revise with only the likes!! New approach & hopefully new results!

Great advice about starting with a blank page. For wordy manuscripts, I recommend rewriting the story from memory and trying to turn the text in each spread into a poem. Both force you focus on the lines that you remember or the emotion with it.

Excellent advice! I recently read my zombie ms. to a bunch of little readers. Their advice was spot on! I changed my POV and cut a few hundred words of a PB biography!

There were some great tips in this blog, one other thing that helps me is to switch the tool I'm using - typing, handwriting, voice recording.
