An edit plan

October 22, 2017

So, I am constructing an edit plan.


This is what that looks like: I read through the chapter and all the associated notes. I review the index card version of what’s important to improve in this draft. Then I write notes for myself in my story’s margins. I am trying not to tinker and line edit here — though a word or two is irresistible. These are notes about major beats. One of them outlines a whole new scene. One of them deletes a scene. Took about 90 minutes to do this chapter. Will probably take full day or maybe two to implement. 




Thanks Suzy Q’s donuts in Ottawa for fueling chapter 7.
