Answering your writing questions
Thanks, Edan! Revision has been/is a death trap for me. This offered some good advice.
Along with the printing-out method for seeing a draft anew, I've found it surprisingly helpful to convert the draft to epub form and send it to iBooks. I read it on my phone or iPad and it looks like an entirely different book! And I can only read and minimally mark it up--not edit! Also very useful for reading other people's drafts and theses when they need holistic feedback, so you don't start to get bogged down in line edits and track changes.
Really appreciated this post!! Both the format and the advice itself :)
This is great, and I will come back to it when I start my novel. I have a record I have been listening to as I complete my current book and I am worried I won't ever be able to listen to it again...
This is so helpful and motivational! As a self-taught, aspiring writer who’s pretty inconsistent about putting the time in- your approach breaks it down and makes it feel less daunting. The book tips are also appreciated.
Excellent post! I'm be using for myself and for my students.
