I’ve gone through my first draft with a red pen and redid the outline, and now I am ready to jump into my second draft. My plan is to keep the marked up print out of my first draft next to me, open a new document, and start writing draft two. Every sentence of draft one will be analyzed and rewritten, every scene will be reworked. Just thinking about it is daunting!
But that’s ok, because the dogs are going to help me. Here is Gabby (with her new summer haircut) with my first draft.
She’s got her pink and blue pens and she is ready to line edit! Or just chew on the corners a little.
