Review, Revise, Rewrite

The three R’s have changed! All writers experience the process of reviewing, revising, and rewriting at several points along the way to a finished manuscript. The boring part of writing; the real work of writing. I’m discovering that the process is not finished until the book is with the printer. For me, this book is like a young child that I can’t let go out into the world on its own. So I continue to review and tweak each week. Even though I’ve begun another story, I’m pulled back into the first story at least once a week. I still find time to write articles for magazines and posts to this blog. Sasee magazine published one of my articles in the December issue (http://sasee.com/2012/12/01/joyful-life-changes/).

Although the world is still grieving for the 26 people lost at Sandy Hook Elementary, I’m preparing to celebrate Christmas with my family. I’m putting away my writing for a few days, traveling and listening to audiobooks (John Sanford’s Lucas Davenport series), and enjoying the sights, smells, tastes, and joy of the Christmas season.

Wishing you a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year!

About Susan Harvey

I'm a humor writer and a newly retired college English instructor. I enjoy reading and writing yet don't take time to do what I really love--writing. I began writing a mystery-romance novel three years ago. Now that I'm retired, I will make time to write with the goal of finishing my novel.
