Un articolo del New York Times riporta che il 54% delle donne ha dichiarato di avere più probabilità di accumulare trenta paia di scarpe che non 30.000 dollari di risparmi per la pensione.
If you plan to read your manuscript (or chapter) five times, what should you focus on with each revision? Editor Andrew Lowe breaks it down into 5 steps:⠀
2️⃣ Now comb it all for your themes and recurring motifs, callbacks, foreshadowing etc. Interrogate every scene and ask: is it needed? Does it serve the story or a broader character function? Do the themes and motifs occur regularly and serve to anchor or entertain the reader? Colour-code/label everything and make a ‘series grid’ - a chapter by chapter rundown. Numbers down the left, themes and motifs and characters/relationships across the top. You should have a healthy development of everything across the scope of the book.⠀
3️⃣ Now get closer. Read the book out loud. Focus on dialogue and description. Does the dialogue sound natural or ‘written’? Is the description flowing and musical, or is it a struggle to wrap your mouth around it? Simplify, refine.⠀
4️⃣ Fillet for redundancies - particularly lazy descriptions. (‘Very hot’ instead of ‘scalding’). In fact, do a search for every ‘very’ - that’s a great place to start with this 😊 Also keep an eye on your speech/dialogue tags. Can you make it clear who’s speaking by using description instead of ‘said xx’? (And kill any ‘ly’ modifiers - he said, flippantly.)⠀
5️⃣ Now leave it for a couple of weeks, then come back and try to detach and read it as a reader who has just picked it up and who has no knowledge about you or the book/series.⠀
