After a week off (between being sick and working with some freelance clients), I'm back at revisions for THE TRIAL. This time around (my fourth draft) I'm in a polishing phase. I'm getting specific, line level notes from a couple of my CPs, and I'm using that information to clean and tighten my manuscript so it'll be ready to query agents. I finished Act I today, so now it's just a matter of waiting on notes for Acts II and III and implementing them as they come in.
It feels crazy exciting to say this, but I'll be back in the query trenches soon!
Today I'd like to talk a little about a technique that, while time consuming, is great when you're in a polishing phase of revision: Reading your work out loud.
