So I’ve decided it’s about time I stopped working on the new and started editing the old so I can push forward and hopefully shop it around. The problem? I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START!
Do I take it page by page? Chapter by chapter? Do I make an outline? A timeline? A crime scene do not cross line? Do I plaster my walls with post its of varying color accompanied by a complicated key? I just don’t know. 200+ pages is overwhelming. Help!!
What works for you? Got any tricks of the trade? Any suggestions? Can you point me towards a website that could help? Want to tell me just to shut up and figure it out on my own?* Any and all words are encouraged and welcomed!
