Sorry I’ve been neglecting the blog. Lately I’ve been spending every second of free time I have on revisions. I really think it’s coming along. I have to admit, it was a bit of a struggle getting used to the idea of so many changes. But I decided if I was really serious about this I had to do whatever it took to get my writing career to the next level–including the willingness to take a hard look at the novel and make the necessary changes.
And if we are going to be honest with ourselves, we probably will never be done making improvements, nor should we be in one sense. There will come the time when you need to let the book go in its imperfect state for publication. But in the meantime, we should always be laboring to take it to a better level than it was in the previous draft.
But I promise more entries are forthcoming, and I’ve got some fun meeting notes to share.
But how about you? What do you find most difficult about the revision process? What inspiration or motivation has helped you through it? What advice would you give to those who are wary of making changes? Have you seen growth in your own writing the more open you are to making revisions? Sound off in the comments below.
