Finding my way – rush

As part of my 2013 project to master the art ‘n’ science of revision, I’m working my way through Holly Lisle’s ‘mugging the muse’.
It’s that rarest of things, the easy-to-absorb book that brings with it a full payload of information.
I’ve also finished Jo Nesbo’s ‘the snowman’ so far today.
The plan (for now) is to finish Ms Lisle’s work then take what I’ve learned and revise ‘1919 (outside)’ – and make a serious dent in that before the year’s end.
The last couple of years have proved I can wring out a first draft in thirty days, now it’s time to get my head round sculpting these basically okay first drafts into something I could beat a baby seal to death with.
2013 – the international year of the polished turd.
