22 Feb Kitty Sheehan | Revise and Edit Your Writing
Revision and editing are the final polishing steps before you submit a manuscript.
If both are done well, your work will have a much better chance to rise above the rest, when it hits the agent’s desk. But where do you start? What are you looking for? How do you decide what to rewrite, what to cut, what to add?
Here are a few skills you’ll gain after your session with Kitty:
- confidence in your writing voice
- quick recognition of the “junk” words in your writing
- how and when to add details
- using dialogue to move your story forward
- find your themes and write to them
- move your content around to tell a better story
