More Editing (Nightmare)

Comments: 2

I was just going through my WIP, GERTA! the other day, doing some edits, finding plot holes, and reconstructing some chapters, etc., and found whole sections and chapters out of place. I don't know how that happened, but I now have my work cut out for me. I think to fix this I need to print out at least the first 5 chapters (where I first noticed this problem), so I can see the whole thing at once, and figure out what needs to be where, and what's missing. Thank goodness for backups.

  1. Amazing what re-reading our own writing can lead us to. Good you spotted what needs to be done before an editor did. Good luck with the revisions!

  2. Thanks Bhaswati. It's going to be a challenge, especially to find time to do what needs to be done, but I'll fix it eventually.
