my revision techniques

Thanks to author Sarah Aronson for inviting me to guest post on her blog! Here is my post, all about what I do when I’m revising a beast of a project that just…isn’t…quite…working: http://community.livejournal.com/thru_the_booth/112119.html. I’ve touched on the idea of the “desperation document” in an earlier blog post, but I go into it in more detail here.

In a recent post Sarah also has great suggestions for writing rituals, such as treating yourself to a special meal when you’ve hit 100 pages, or had a breakthrough, or made it to the end of your draft. I like this idea A LOT. We writers don’t give ourselves much time to celebrate the successes along the way. I think we should all take Sarah’s advice!
