Now, if you have on your positive thinking hat while reading this post, you know that there are various ways to make a manuscript better.
Your first draft is not your best writing. Think of it as the skeleton of your novel.
She also has encouraged me to rewrite one project while working on the next one. Ami said, “The two processes are quite different – one is all about nuts and bolts craft application; the other is free and creative. During your editing of Project A, you may discover something that will improve your writing during the creative phase of Project B.”
A writer should have a plan and that plan should be to write, write, and write. This is something that I learned a while ago, but didn’t understand it until now. I have seven manuscripts/outlines that are filed away for me to rewrite or revisit in the future.
Being a prolific writer has its benefits, but it also requires discipline. And thanks to my mentor, I’m able to keep my focus.
Thank you, Ami, for all that you do.
