Reviewing Old Chapters: The Process of Editing
I have started the ever-tedious process of going through my old chapters before creating any new material. I highly recommend this technique to anyone who is creating any new material.
So far, I have found paragraph errors, single line errors and a few errors in punctuation. It is critical that you ensure whatever you are writing is grammatically ready for press. There is no excuse for laziness, when composing anything for sale.
I have also been glancing furtively at my use of language in my story. I’m pleased with the exchanges between the characters at times, but I do find certain areas where the conversation between them gets lost at times. Conversation is an important part of any book. Always remember that your characters are the ones telling the story, not you.
Lastly, save copies. Save, save, save. Redundancy is the key to success.
