As you know, I've finished my manuscript and now it's on to revising. First step: printing out the sucker and reading through it. The first read through I try to look out for only big picture things--plot, characters, setting. I'll map out my scenes and see how they flow. I'll make a plot graph to analyze the pacing of the story. It sounds boring and to many people it is but for me this is the fun part. I get giddy as I think of all the potential the story has. It's pure creation--my favorite kind of high.
