Rewrite novelWrite a new novel
Besides, my ideas for the novel had changed during the year it was written. A long time ago I realized that I had to master the art of rewriting. This is content relevant to the Rewrite Visual Roman and its Fandisc Rewrite Harvest Festa! Concentrate on the settings in your novel and write a better story.
There are five ways to make it less sore - Ryan Casey
I' ll tell you a little secret: I can' stand to rewrite it. In December I completed a new first design. It can' t be as simple as getting the first designs down and send them to the people? Luckily, there are ways to make re-writing a little more workable.
A key rule that almost every author seems to be in agreement on is that we authors have to dissociate ourselves from our work before we jump to the new version. I' m aware that I'm somehow hypocrite by myself being here and making a method listing, but notice that "if you like" in the headline.
First, if you awaken after a whole weeks and are ready to rewrite yourself, then, loan to you. Let me say a few words about these little listings we blogger writes - sometimes, believe it or not, we don't obey our own set of sorts. We' re going to make what we know appealing to the people. As I try not to do it myself, we are all owed to make one or two idealist sentences in our life, when in fact we fight back like the others of you.
Generate a new structure. I' d strongly advise to rewrite one if you fight with the lawsuit. I' m well aware that I'm trying, and this seems to really help me outlining it. Do you know what a design is? As Roz Morris called it, it is a'beat sheet' in her (excellent) Nail Your Novel eBook.
It is the thought to go through your script and take a momentary picture of the use of each sequence on a worksheet / sheet of papers / part. When you' re done, you can look at your novel from a bird perspective. It is also a good way to boost your rewrite processes.
I' m marking a shot in scarlet on the beatsheet when I've re-written it. It' a great way to be healthy, I'm sure. Keeping a healthy is something on the subject - re-writing it will probably be challenging for your mind, so make some real goals. I' ll try to rewrite at least two sequences a days, according to length, and that works for me.
It is important not to rewrite too much as in the first draft: you do not want to be burnt out. It' going to be a rewrite, and nobody wants that, huh? A further excuse not to go too mad when transcribing, perhaps more than when you wrote your first draft: you don't want to get too deep into your novel.
In writing a first sketch, I have a tendency to work from a semi-subconscious state in which words flow out of my mind, on the basis of what is good and in accordance with my first sketch "Roadmap". The re-writing, however, is a little different. So if you rewrite 20,000 words per page of a bad novel, there is a good chance that you will be a little shitty afterwards.
Like everything in Scripture (and in life!), know your limitations and establish your goals from them. Revriting can be a lengthy, tedious and protracted exercise, but you and your reader will thank you if you are tolerant. It' going to make a better novel.
Understand that the first design is a completely different animal from your original one. In the same way, I suspect that when musical data loses some of its clarity when torn from immaterial abstraction on a disk to computer disk format tediously, it loses its clarity in its'transformation' from thought to write-on.
In the past I was particularly emphasized on this point, but as I am writing more, I am amazed at the splendour of this astonishing transformation underway. What We Saw's new versions were hard in the beginning, especially because I didn't give myself anything new to work on. As my first novel I was still very strong in the camps "One single film after another".
However, later in the rewrite writing I was working on some brief histories (Something in the Cellar and Silhouette) and found that my idea was still very much alive despite the rigour of the rewrite, but the crucial side of my mind was actually inspired by these new notions.
Now, I've completed the first Killing Freedom design and begun working on the revisions, what do I do to stimulate the creativity of my mind? Now, I've only spelled 40,000 words from another novel. When the rewrite takes you down, take your stylus and get inspired.
It' s good to write every day, so this is a good way to keep yourself in the game. When I reached the end of their KDP Select obligations, I resolved to make my two brief tales Something in the Cellar and Silhouette available across platforms. I am a big KDP Select fans (thoughts here and lately here) and will keep adding my books, but I don't see much of the advantages for shorter storytelling.
