Not Done Yet… Revisions, Revisions and Yes, More Revisions

EPISODE 8 of From Start to Finish: 10 Stages of Writing a Novel with Jen Braaksma:
Not Done Yet… Revisions, Revisions and Yes, More Revisions

The shine of your first draft has now worn off. Your whole mantra (It’s okay, the first draft doesn’t have to be perfect) no longer applies. All you can see now is the miles you still have to go. If you’d only gotten it right—gotten it perfect—on the first draft, then you wouldn’t feel so daunted.

But you did right by just writing! And you don’ t have to make every change and get it right on draft 2, either. That’s the comfort of knowing there can be draft 3. Or 4. You’ll get there!

Join me for the eighth stage of “From Start to Finish: 10 Stages of Writing a Novel”.

  • Learn strategies for revisions.
  • Learn how to focus so you don’t feel overwhelmed.
  • Learn how to manage your expectations.

You will benefit from:

  • A discussion of my revision processes as well as what I’ve learned from the writers I work with as a book coach.
  • Focused writing exercises
  • Encouragement and advice to make it through this stage
  • Q&A

This class is for:

  • Writers finishing a first draft
  • Writers at any stage—what revision strategies work best for you?

Jen Braaksma is a writer, book coach and high school English teacher who has been through the writing wringer—and lived to tell the tale. Her first young adult fantasy novel will be published in 2022 (though it’s her fourth manuscript, so for all you not-yet-published writers out there, keep the faith!) She’s hard at work on a new adult fantasy novel, The Fairy Tale Fringe Festival. Be the first to hear all about it in Jen’s webinar episodes!
