This month in my newsletter, Writing on Caffeine, I’m looking at writing skills, and this time it is all about how to edit your first draft! First drafts are fickle creatures. They are hastily thrown together (especially if you are a “gardener” writer like myself) and need work to form the story that you see in your mind’s eye. Editing your first draft can feel like climbing a mountain without a guidebook – there is simply so much to fix, and you also have to face the dreaded realisation that not all the scenes you wrote are in fact, any good (and this is okay).
There are a number of different ways you can approach editing a first draft, and in this edition of Writing on Caffeine I talk through some goal setting and top tips for editing yours!
