Thanks for joining us again for The Merry Writer Podcast. On today's episode we are talking about editing (again) as we share our processes to the question: "How Do You Edit Your First Draft?"
This week's guest post is the lovely K E Domeny, who discusses the horrors and successes of being a writer. Enjoy!
Today I want to talk about your responsibility as a writer. Hint: it's NOT just about writing books. I recently witnessed a young writer, in a Facebook group, ask for critique on her first chapter. I and several other writers offered to read it. I made copious notes and sent it back, however she couldn't access my notes due to a "version" issue of the software we were using. However, other writers had better luck. After receiving her critique, she got angry, left a rather snarky message on the group and left. It showed little for the writer's maturity, when they lashed out and even less for their ability to accept criticism.
Okay, so we're talking about editing again. Last time I discussed the technique of the Epic Edit. But that's not everyone's cup of tea. Since I am currently at the first edit stage of my newly rewritten manuscript "Dark Hart", I thought this would be a good time to talk about editing again.
