First draft tips

I’m editing Amy’s Courage and I’m dragging my feet. Starting from the beginning and going through until the end is simply overwhelming. Handling a first draft is like trying to untangle Rapunzel’s hair, overwhelming.

Here are some tips I found helpful. I really liked this one because it chopped the massive task into little bits I could handle. This one was really good because it suggested how to go through the entire thing and make lists…and I love lists. And this one was great because it had simple, easy tips I could like or discard. This one was filled with easy tips that made so much sense.

Finally, this one talks about placeholders. I use them. So, I like to know how to do that properly.

How about you? How do you get from first draft to polished gem?

By the way, I’ve added these to the Resources side links. Hope they help!
