Our Monster’s Sequel Update – 2nd Draft Complete

Good news to report! Today I spent the morning and afternoon editing. The hours yielded a completed second draft of the “Our Monsters” sequel, “Bad Monsters”. Scenes were cut. New scenes added. I spent a good amount of time on continuity too. There is still a lot of work left but a large chunk of the project is finished. Most of the¬†manuscript¬†editing from here on out is copy editing, tweaking little details that can lead to¬†inconsistencies. Other eyes will begin to help me with these things. It’s a slow process but worth the effort.

Some writers might do multiple drafts of a manuscript, I don’t. Prior to beginning the first draft of a novel I outline the story in detail, plan the scenes, the twists and turns, and what events will grow the characters. This is why I don’t do more than two major drafts, though the manuscript’s language gets revised for readability and flow, other’s lend me a hand doing this.

More articles and reviews to come. Stay tuned. Cheers!
