Tediously Editing

Tedious it is, but necessary also! Incredibly necessary actually. I’m currently turning the bare-bones of my rough draft into something worthwhile. Beefing it up, if you will, and developing characters.

So the first step of this is easy. I read it and change a lot. I improve the flow and the story. I correct any typos. Then, I do it again. And again. And again. Then I give it to a couple friends to spot check. They give it back with corrections and suggestions and we begin the process over again.

So tedious perhaps, and definitely redundant, but again, wholly necessary. And so far I have beefed up my word count about five thousand words (got about 13000 more until my goal) and have made tons of overall improvements. Now to continue on through the next 100 pages…
