A short post about drafts and editing

 

In pictures (some moving) because I really should be editing.

 

I’ve just finished the first draft of the next book.

There was lots of this

Everyword

And now I have a first draft full of all the words. Some of it makes sense. Some of it…

nooooooooot so much.

So…

Hold my purse

It’s time to edit. I have printed it out, I have a notebook to make notes and a pen to decorate the margins in doodles err I mean edit.

I will read through the whole thing and try to make it better. Basically in this scenario there are two me’s. Beckett me and Castle me. (Editor brain and Snowflake brain)

dont ruin my story with your logic

But in the end it isn’t ruined. It’s made better. I hope.

And that is my editing process.

 

Actually there is a lot more to it than that but this is the basic premise and I should be editing, not doing blog posts about editing.

But blog posts with little moving pictures are sooooooooooo much more fun.

(Oh and I totally stole these gifs and images from all over the internet).
