Revisions & Free E-Books for Writers

     It has been a productive morning for writing. I began my 1 Pass Manuscript Revision process and completed the first five items (see last blog post). Easy questions but a little difficult to get it all down on paper since some answers had to be in 25 words or less than 1 sentence.
     After these exercises I put my spiral bound notebook aside and picked up my Writer’s Digest magazine, with guess what on the cover? “Your Ultimate Revision Guide.” After reading this article, which is pretty good by the way, I was on overload and put the magazine down.
     At lunch it was time to catch up on Facebook stuff and I saw “FREE” on a Writer’s Digest FB link to an article writer by Jane Friedman, Editor at WD. I followed it, intrigued with Free, and found the article below. If the highlighted areas don’t click to the books mentioned please use the link at the bottom of the article. I perused the first one and found several helpful tips. I hope you do too. Write on.
