This was my final bits of revision this last round.
I wrote all the scenes that I had already written on white strips of paper
then I wrote all the scenes I needed to inject on blue post-its
I laid out the finished scenes and it was easy to see how and where I could fit in the new revisions.
This method worked well for me because it allowed me to wrap my brain around what I was doing. I write best in scenes and this really plays into that method.
Note: this pic only shows the last 60 or so pages of the novel. I did it in chunks like this to make it more manageable.
Anyway...after several nights clicking away at the keyboard,
I'd like to present to you, my dear blogging/writing friends:
My finished, notated, cover letter-ed, rubber-banded, revised manuscript ready to be sent off to super-agent-dude.
Ain't she pretty?
don't misunderstand, I am fully aware that more revisions will lie ahead, but this round is done.
Who'll join me for a big wa-hoo?!?!?!?!?!
