How many people know someone who wrote a novel, but gave up before they became published?
Have they just left their manuscript unfinished? Did they send it to an editor and not agree with the changes that needed to be done? Were they upset when they were told it needs too much work and to redraft the whole thing?
If you know someone like this or have faced this yourself, then you’ll understand why this tutorial is important.
99% of authors get stuck when it’s time to edit their novels.
About 60% give up before they start trying to make their manuscript better because of fear.
The thought of changing their “baby” can be overwhelming. Because so many writers pour themselves into their writing and characters, it can sometimes mesh together. This is why they get defensive about their work and justify why it should stay the way it is. They don’t see the potential in going back and figuring out what is wrong. Sometimes, it was wrong from the beginning and the author doesn’t even know until the editor has their manuscript.
When the editor informs them of this, they are overwhelmed and frustrated.
The result–writer’s block.
The inability to edit a story often means that it is left unfinished, tossed aside or forgotten about for weeks, months–even years.
That is hard earned time and money authors waste when they could try to salvage some part of it and try again. Even if the manuscript is a rewrite, there is always something to take away from each draft.
Most manuscripts transform in drafting and editing, but there are ways to combat the writer’s block, the over-defensive behavior and resistance to change. After three years of writing her first manuscript, E.M. Whittaker has developed a breakthrough strategy that has helped her succeed in finally finishing a novel for editor submission.
Already her tutorial has helped those who are new to writing their own stories, be it fiction, comic or any other story.
Her tutorial focuses on how to flesh out main and secondary characters, picturing them to help authors with the cover art stage and how to outline a chapter so it’s structured before writing it and after completion. A special bonus is how she shares pictures from her personal experience with this method.
This tutorial is a taste of what she does for her clients on a day by day basis.
