Revising a novel can be almost as big of a challenge as writing it if you don’t have a plan of attack. Once you’ve finished a first draft, chances are that there are so many things that need attention that the whole prospect of working on it can overwhelm you. But I’ve come to love the process of revisions, sometimes more than writing the first draft.
Well this was just made for me today! I received edits back on my second WIP and it really was the mess I thought! But in between I came up with a new plot line that I really love. My editor wants me to keep in the plot I had thought to reject, so it should be interesting!
