Season 1: Episode 04

Those Pre-Editing Blues

January 11, 2018

Happy New Year! Welcome the first episode of the 2018! Kate and Tasha discuss self-editing and how they approach the sometimes painful, but definitely worthwhile process.

  • Why is it important to read and self edit your novel before you send it to an editor?
  • Tasha's step by step process that includes taking a two-week break from the novel then printing and binding it at her local Fedx Kinkos.
  • What goes into a three pass edit?
  • Kate opinion on critiques and whether or not reviews are for authors or readers (spoiler alert: they're for readers).
  • Series notebooks and why everyone needs them.
