So You Want to Edit Your Manuscript
Novel Writing Basics
Editing is a task we should all take seriously, but what exactly does it mean to edit a manuscript.  Isn't it just write a novel and send it off to be published (or self published)?  No, it's not.  Editing is hard and, not to scare you away, but it's also easy to go overboard with your editing and end up with something you hate.
Don't think you're only going to edit once.
Michael Crichton may have said it best, "Books aren't written, they're rewritten.  Including your own.  It is one of the hardest things to accept, especially after the seventh rewrite hasn't quite done it."  Now, I'm not going to say you'll need to edit seven times, but there's an easy four step process you can follow. 
Edit Yesterday's Writing Today  If you're setting a schedule for your writing, it usually helps to read a bit of what is already written to get back into the mood.  Capitalize on this and get your first edit done

Thank you for the llama :)
Here, have one back~ ^^
DyDiKing Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2016
Very kind of you! ^^
stepke Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2016  Professional General Artist
many thanks for your :+fav: on dress to play 05

I still think about how to continue the series, for the last three days I have been sketching on some rough ideas to get into the flow.
DyDiKing Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2016
I really like how you did the color! There's something a bit childish in a way, and how you don't clearly show the different creatures, reallly interesting.
I don't know if you know the french comic Blast, by Manu Larcenet, but there's some moment where he use a technique a bit like this to show how his character feels under drugs, maybe you could check this! ^^

thank you ...  I didn't know the comic,  I'm really fascinated by the expressive style.
for me this "childish" maybe "naiv" way of drawing is some kind of intuitive explorative way ...don't no where the strokes want to go... playing between fortuity and control.
I have to confess the drawings could be much more expressive without loosing the shapes and silhouettes.
DyDiKing Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2016
Well, I can only encourage you to experiment as you seem to do for every project you're involved!
(And if you understand french, or if it was translate, I recommand you this comic, it's really a master piece!)
