- Print out each chapter
- Read paper copy of each chapter and annotate changes after a fresh re-read
- Re-type the chapter fresh into a new document and re-write as I do so
- Then put aside and start on the next chapter
- Try not to think about the next book, as I have the idea, structure and notes for that already. Step away, Planethalder!
I started re-drafting Chapter 1 yesterday using this process and it seems to be working. But we'll see. It can all change if I discover plot holes or weak characters etc.
