First Draft Finished

Just completed the first draft of the third novel!

Now I’ll be looking at revisions. One thing that I’m noticing is that with each novel the revisions phase seems to be shortening. This time around there’s no chapter reordering or major additions or removals required. Still a lot of cleanup needed of course… some weak characters and a couple boring bits and whatnot but in general I think this revision pass will go significantly faster than the last.

I will take a bit of a break and write a couple short stories but will start revisions by end of July and have the novel ready for sending out in early fall.

    Grats, Brent!  That’s masterful work. :)  I’ve noticed after finishing the first draft of my novel.  I made all these mistakes and I’m taking steps to make the revision of my next novel easier (more pre-planning for one -_-).

    Thanks Laurie.

    Very much a learning experience each time. With each novel written I’m making notes to improve the process for the next time.

    How are you doing with your revisions?
