what are your best tips for revising fiction especially fantasy? At the risk of sounding whiny lol, I feel like I've been revising for a while and not getting where I want to be. I've read so many guides and checklists. Please help!

The next stage is probably going to be plot planners/outline in a Storyist document. And maybe character arcs. Or maybe just playing around with index cards again. There’s a lot to work out if I want to rewrite this thing into something I’m happy with.

it's crazy what you catch when you haven't looked at your manuscript in a long time. "Clearly unimpressed" has been repeated sooooo many times.

My fuel this morning was the last sliver of leftover birthday cake from my mom's birthday. She put in a special request for a Guinness chocolate cake with Irish cream frosting. Went perfectly with my 4am cup of coffee.

Got new CB down to <10,000 w help of my CPs. πŸ˜€Sometimes you just need that little push to help you cut out unnecessary words. Easier to feel less attached when others have pointed out that they aren't necessary for the story. I'm more objective now!

Last night, I read some of my book (with ) to my 19-y-o. When I looked up, the kid was crying! So touched at the way they connected with the MCs in A PLACE AT THE TABLE. They actually said, "It's really good, Mom." Best encouragement ever.

Oof, actually got a lot done this weekend! Since I started the neverending overhaul of the WIP, I’ve added nearly 40k to the total word count (also deleted and rewritten tons)... anyone else stuck in the Revisions Pit?

Writing is a tricky business. Over the past 3 weeks I've been , I've gone from 'ohhhh I love this story and especially these characters' to 'this is the worse crap I've ever read, let alone written'

Hey Twitter anyone speak ? I’ve written a few words into my and used a few translation sites to help perfect it but I’m well aware that an actual human native speaker or someone fluent might be a better judge.

Woke up to some heartbreaking news. So in an effort to make myself feel better, I did the only think I could think of. Could someone warn my agent and CPs that a full of poop jokes is on their way.

Making some major revisions on a story I love. Breaking it down to build it up stronger. Wish me luck.

As hard as revision can be, it feels worth it when you're going through your MS for the millionth time but your heart still flutters and that one line that you just love so much.

So, I just finished a round of revisions. NO new scenes or chapters, but 10K added w/ layering. This is what it's like to be someone who writes thin drafts and slowly beefs them up.
