Novel Revision 101: DIY and Collaborative Revision

Contact me to offer this workshop to your writing group.

In this three-hour workshop, you’ll draft a plan to get your novel from first draft to finished manuscript. We’ll break down the stages of writing, revising, and editing, and look at how fear, avoidance, and pride are your worst enemies. I’ll teach you how to test each scene for POV, tone, and tension, and help you know when to get help, where to find it, and what to expect from it. You’ll leave with an editing schedule that starts with you and expands to include critique groups, professionals, and beta readers.

Developed as a special training session to kick off the Houston Writers’ Guild’s Annual Conference.
