Day 46

What does your editing/revision process look like?

Once I have everything that I’ve plotted out written, I take a breather. I step away, play some video games, read a book, or just rest my mind for a few days. Sometimes a few days stretches into a week. When I feel rejuvenated again, I go back with fresh eyes and read the WIP in its entirety. Everytime I sit down and read through my writing, I always find something to change. Sometimes it is a little typo, sometimes I find a massive plot hole or something that doesn’t gel with the rest of the book. The truth is, no work will ever be perfect or ever feel finished, especially for writers. But a while back, a friend gave me some writing advice I have carried with me since then: If you feel like it’s the best writing you’ve done, it’s finished.
