Editing is a lot of work. Here at ProWritingAid, we're doing everything we can to simplify the self-editing process. But we know that, sometimes, just having the right tools isn't enough. You need a strategy to get you from a rough first draft to a polished manuscript ready to send to a human editor.
That's why we reached out to award-winning author and writing coach, Mary Adkins, to pick her brains about how to make the editing process as painless as possible.
Revise Your Book Once, the Right Way
You can save yourself months of frustration by approaching revision with the proper mindset and priorities. Author Mary Adkins learned this the hard way: she rewrote her first novel, When You Read This, 13 times! But when she turned in her third novel, Palm Beach, to her editor at HarperCollins several months ago, she had only revised it once. What's the difference? It's all in the system Mary will teach you in this webinar. Watch the replay above now!
