The Revision #MondayMotivation
In 1946, sportswriter Paul Gallico wrote, "It is only when you open your veins and bleed onto the page a little that you establish contact with your reader."
For me, the bleeding comes with revising and editing. No matter how much we write, eventually all writers have to edit. This year, I actually have an almost-complete novel to work with thanks to National Novel Writing Month.
I also purchased Scrivener at a great discount because I achieved my NaNoWriMo goal. It's not an easy novel-formatting program. So I bought a Kindle Scrivener how-to, and checked out Scrivener for Dummies at the library. My goal is to have the novel, now residing in over 40 Word files, transferred to Scrivener by the end of the month.
Pour yourself a glass of something strong and get to your editing. I'll join you. We can do this!
