NEW SELF-EDITING WORKSHEET!
After Katie commented on my blog about my Self-Editing class, I realized that I could just offer a self-editing worksheet for those of you who wanted to take my online class but couldn't because of timing or cost. So here it is!
You've finished your novel! How do you make sure you have a good character arc, strong story structure, good pacing? How can you smooth over rough writing patches, eliminate episodic writing, or increase emotional intensity? My Self-Editing worksheet combines a variety of techniques that I have taught in online workshops into one place, with tips to help you refine and polish your manuscript.
By the end of the worksheet you'll have:
1) A good large-scale view of your story structure and character arc, and knowledge about how to fix any problems in that area
2) Tips for how to revise more emotion into your writing
3) Tools for solving pacing issues
4) A deeper look at technical writing errors to look for in your writing
5) An understanding of your own strengths and weaknesses in terms of critiquing yourself
This 69-page worksheet consists of lessons, homework, and fun exercises for you to do various types of self-editing on your manuscript. You’ll learn lots of simple techniques to help you revise and tighten your manuscript to be the best it can be.
Note: If you've bought my Deep Point of View worksheet, there are some of those Deep POV tips here in this worksheet. However, the Deep POV worksheet goes into more detail and depth whereas the Deep POV tips in this worksheet are not as extensive. If you're on the fence about if you should get the Self-Editing worksheet or the Deep POV worksheet, the Self-Editing worksheet includes about 60% of what's in the Deep POV worksheet as well as my other self-editing lessons.
Update: I forgot to mention that if you've already bought my Characterization worksheet, this Self-Editing worksheet has the majority of what's in that worksheet, in addition to other self-editing lessons and tips. So basically, if you've already bought both my Deep POV and Characterization worksheets, this Self-Editing worksheet will have a lot of the same stuff.
If you've taken (or are currently taking) my Self-Editing online class, no need to get this worksheet--it includes all the lessons from class. The only difference is that the class includes my specific feedback on your manuscript.
