3/31: 230 words. Closing out the month with some light editing. It’s actually one of my favorite parts of the writing process, and it’s how I do my second draft. Go through and read the preceding chapters and add emotional depth, revise quips and dialog, brush things up, and fix obvious typographical errors.

For the third draft, I do much the same thing but print out the whole manuscript and do it. And somehow, seeing it in a different medium enables me to see things differently and leads to unexpected alterations. Every time.

Don't miss anything about projects I'm working on, new books you should be looking for, and articles about the craft and business of writing. I'll also give you the first three chapters of my novel, Vulcan Rising.
