So I’m diving into some revisions – for a picture book and for a middle grade novel. I am totally thrilled to be doing it – particularly for the middle grade novel – because it has literally been a year since I’ve been neck deep in it, and I’ve got a set of super-fresh eyes.
In that year I’ve read me some Donald Maas, and I’ve written me a whole bunch of new stuff. I feel like I’ve gotten stronger and smarter about how I write, and I am so psyched about adding that into my much-loved first manuscript.
I have a small set of questions and comments, and my own niggling list of to-dos to accommodate – but it will be great to get in there and see what transpires naturally. I’m hopeful that this revision will prove as creative as the original writing process.
