I'm now doing a Novel Revision course in parallel to the Writing Career Course. While the Writing Career course is helping in places, the novel I need to fix is completed so this makes much more sense.

The other novel (now that I have been able to see how to convert this into the first part of a standalone novel), although complete in itself, now needs some editing to allow the other two story strands to fit into this book. So, for this project, I'm using both the revision process and the writing process. I can also see how this revision process could be helpful for restarting my stalled science fiction novel.

  1. Sounds like you’ve got everything covered. I think you’re going to be busy for a bit. 😀

  2. Just remember that writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way…..

  3. Very true. However, it is possibly more valuable to be able to look at a map and see your journey and destination in greater context… 😉
