Your writing process is your writing process. There are many ways to find your way in and many, many ways to execute a killer story. (Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself.) The point is, that no one can really tell you what your process should be. That is for you to discover. However, there are a great many guides in this business, who are willing to share what they’ve learned along the way. One of my favorites is Darcy Pattison. Darcy is knowledgeable and insightful and continues to learn and share along the way. Her Novel Metamorphosis: Uncommon Ways to Revise is full of fabulous tools for revising and revisioning your novel. For a heaping helping of writing wisdom this week, I direct you to Darcy Pattison's Fiction Notes where you can sign up for her newsletter and read past blog entries and learn more about writing and revising.
