The blog of rom-com writer (Cally Taylor) turned psychological suspense author (CL Taylor).
I got all excited about that link as I'm due to start work on my third draft in the next week or so - but it's not really about finishing a novel as such, it's about getting to the end of the first draft. If only that was all it took *sigh*
Oh - sorry about that. If I stumble across anything about editing a draft I'll post it up.How are you getting on with the third draft? Any tips you want to pass on?
(Hm. fIRST THOUGHT: 700 pages of "DON'T KILL ME DON'T KILL ME DON'T KILL ME..."). ....Well, it's about the first draft, but I think it's applicable at every stage of the process. Yes, I agree with Maggie. It's a major gumption trap: getting fooled by the whole process into thinking that you'll just "know" when your work is finished. Wheras...in that sense, it never is.Getting it out the door or moving to the next draft is enormously important. Momentum is everything.
