If the reason you dread revising your novel is because of the enormity of the task, Kris Spisak is here with good news.
The frequent Writer’s Digest contributor says you can build up momentum by revising in waves or stages.
All you need to do is create some sort of list, whether it’s an editorial road map or a basic to-do list, and then focus on each goal individually.
This, Spisak says, will ultimately feel less intimidating — and be more effective — than worrying about each facet of your writing on every single page of your draft.
Her argument for the benefits of revising your novel in waves is up at Writer’s Digest.
