TIPS ON BECOMING A BETTER WRITER – DAY 25

In between my cooking and cleaning the house preparing for Thanksgiving, I managed to add something to my manuscript. I was able to type in another 923 words. My new total is now 52,650.

The tip for today is:

  1. Revise or rewrite your manuscript. After you have reread your manuscript, it is time to rewrite it or revise it. Some authors can go through three, five or even ten revisions. My second book, “The Iron Butterfly” had gone through several revisions. New authors as well as established authors go through the process. No one published their book on the first draft.

My book recommendation for today is “I’ll be home for Christmas: The Spirit of Christmas During World War II” by the Library of Congress. I read this book a while back but with Christmas coming soon, it’s nice to get reminded of those men and women who bravely served during World War II. This book is a compilation of stories, events and pictures gathered by the Library of Congress from the diaries and correspondence of the greatest generation.

Ill be home for Christmas
