Yesterday I finished my revision of The Swallow’s Spring.
I had needed to read through it because I discovered the formatting was not correct for electronic submissions, and I wanted to make sure, once I’d redone the formatting, everything had landed where it ought.
Also, I met an agent last summer who was interested in the novel but recommended I revise one more time before I submit. So I did.
I am excited about the finished novel, and even more excited that soon it will be able to fly out from my nest. All that’s left to do is key in the chapter changes. (I revise best on paper, in pencil). By March, this swallow should be winging her way into the publishing marketplace!
What kind of revision journey are you on, and how do you revise best?
