To continue with the theme of editing this month I came across an excellent video on YouTube where writer David Farland gives a talk that describes his editing process.
Farland breaks his editing down into 6 separate processes/types of edit:
2. Voice Edit
3. Descriptive Edit
6. Line Edit
It’s a very interesting talk, and yes, it is long. So grab a coffee, your notebook and pen and enjoy. A lot of what he said made total sense to me, although the idea of editing my MS 6 times is a little daunting! Lol
I think I’m beginning to know where to start now. How about you?
