The Basics of Revision

Today’s post can be found at http://magicalwords.net, the group blog on the business and craft of writing fantasy that I maintain with fellow authors Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, A.J. Hartley, Stuart Jaffe, and Edmund Schubert, among others. The post is called “Basics of Writing, part IX: How to Revise a Manuscript or Story,” and it’s a continuation of my “Basics” series on various aspects of the writing process. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks, Jennifer. I agree about short fiction -- although I do find that I don't need quite as much time away from a shorter piece, perhaps because the immersion in the writing process isn't as long.

And yes, reading old work can be fun as well as edifying.
