NaNoReviMo is off to a killer start! I have been inundated with updates from fellow revisers, full of inspiration, ideas, and good ol' kick in the butts. I can't be left in the dust. I am accountable. I must revise. I will polish and perfect.
Today, I am going to try to do something helpful and/or useful: submit a revising tip. I have been researching the revising process, and this is a little gem I have come up with:
PRINT THE SUCKER OUT!
Okay, I don't think any published author actually wrote those exact words. That is definitely my slant on the tip. It doesn't matter how you do it.
- Email it to Kinkos to get it bound--it's cheap and when your book hits the big time you could auction it off for a cool mill'.
- Print it out at home and three ring bind it.
- Go to your mom's house and print it out there using her paper and ink--that stuff costs as much as gold!
I went for the Kinkos version. I am going to read the whole DANG thing in two days! With my little red pen and highlighter. I am also keeping track of notes in a notebook.
It's amazing how the words look and sound so different on the page, as opposed to the jaded computer screen.
Just an idea!
Go Team NaNoReviMo!
