I found a sweet new way to revise. I used to copy my old draft to a new file and make changes there. Now I split my screen, put the old draft on the left, and write a new copy on the right, starting with a blank file. Granted, “write a new copy” is just copy & paste for the parts where I’m satisfied with the old version, so functionally it works out to the same thing. But it feels different, and I’m lovin’ it.
The first sentence of my new draft is:
The Lady Rana Serago sat twelve years alone in a deep dungeon.
Comparisons with your own revision process?
Anyway, leave me a comment and I’ll read it in a few hours. Too busy writing at the moment. 🙂
