Five Factors Unpacking

Revise It! The Miniseries: Seven Steps to Unpacking Your First Fiction Draft tackles seven key areas in content revisions to get your first draft into great condition! There are some fundamental sweeps that every fiction manuscript needs to express your vision, please your readers, and get your manuscript cleaned up and ready for editors.

Maybe you’re a plotter that writes super-clean drafts. If so, then another checklist to make sure your revision goes super-quick can’t hurt so you can excel even more.

Maybe you’re a pantser who trusts that somewhere in that mass of words is a great story. I believe in you! But a great revision makes sure the world sees your brilliance.

And if you’re somewhere in between like me, welcome to the club! We have cookies.
