Revisited: Editing

in best writer resources, material girl


A friend (an awesome friend who I love, fyi) bought this book, Revision & Self-Editing, for me after I featured it on Material Girl.

I was correct in my assessment that it would be helpful.  It is, in fact, extremely informative.  James Scott Bell covers all the elements of writing: character, POV, scenes, plot & structure, etc.  Each chapter offers valuable exercises and techniques.  I couldn’t recommend this book more.

(Thanks again, Jen!)

You’re more than welcome, hon. Glad to see it’s helpful, the POV thing is interesting, something that seems so obvious but would never have occured to me. :)
