Finished your draft and wondering what comes next? Approaching a thorough round of edits can feel overwhelming enough that the temptation to skip it and submit can be strong—do not give in! Every story can be made better with proper editing, and once you know how to implement feedback throughout your document, the task goes from daunting to a fun challenge much in the same way that writing is.
Note: 'Editing 101' is one workshop in a series of Writer in Residence Workshops. Each workshop stands alone, and you are not required to attend all of them. Take a look at the other workshops here:
- The Basics of Storytelling and How to Complete a Novel: A Young Adult Workshop
- The Ins and Outs of Outlining a Novel
- How to Keep Your Creativity Cycle from Drying Up: Make the most of the juice you’ve got!
- The Querying Process
- Tips to “Making It” in Publishing
