Revision - GO!

Okay, today I am printing out a copy of my Nanowrimo novel and I'm going to start revising that puppy. It's my New Year's Resolution. I should have started this yesterday, but somehow that didn't happen.

In one month, I want you guys to start asking me if you can read it. Seriously. Because by then, I want to have something I'm not totally ashamed to have others read.

I found an interesting writing website - hollylisle.com - that I think is a great resource, not only on revision but on many aspects of the writing life. The particular articles I am going to reference for my revision process (although I can already tell that I won't be adhering to her method entirely) are "How to Revise a Novel" and "One Pass Revision".

So I want to know - What are your writing goals for the New Year?

My goal is to complete some of the things I have rough drafts of. I also want to continue developing a writing routine. Doing some submissions this year would be nice too.

Wow, I'm in awe. If you're seriously ready, after one month of revision for someone to read it, I'll volunteer.

I'm not saying I'll have a final polished copy, I'm just saying, I'll have a rough draft that isn't too embarassing.

Wow, MBA! That Holly Lisle website is super. Thanks for sharing. It may be the only thing that will get me to finish up some of the things I've started writing and never finished.
