I could really relate to Angie's post about how an independent streak can throw up a misplaced sense of guilt - relying on others to achieve your goals can make you feel like a burden, sometimes even a cheat. But the truth is, I wouldn't be where I am now without the support of family and friends. Everyone needs a little help sometimes.
So here goes. I'm going to start editing/rewriting my first draft soon, and I'm becoming a little nervous about it. Just a tad.
- Should I work line by line from the beginning to the end, or skip around?
- Should I make all my revisions at once, or focus on one issue at a time?
- How can I make sure my edits and revisions stay organised?
- How long should I give myself to edit the entire draft?
So I'm reaching out to everyone who reads this blog - please leave a comment or email your experiences, tips, tricks, links or blogging on the subject. I'd really, really appreciate it. Whatever you have, even if you think it is unimportant, will be a help.
