The Devil’s in the Details…Posted: January 23, 2015 Filed under: Odds and Ends | Tags: Melissa Stevens, revision, rewrites 1 Comment
All of them. I’m sure you know I’ve been working on revisions (I’ve certainly not made any secret of it.) In revisions or rewriting you play with a lot of details, make sure some of them are consistent and others vary. It takes time and sometimes it can be tedious, but it always pays off in the end. Personally I go over every manuscript at least five times, sometimes more, before I let anyone else read it.
Am I the only one this obsessive?
You aren’t obsessive—you’re revising to make your manuscript as strong as possible. Details matter!
