After the First Draft:
by Jessa Slade
Writing is rewriting. Which is simple to say (and sorta cliché!) but not always so easy to do. Learn self-editing tips and tricks for commercial genre fiction from Jessa Slade a.k.a. Elsa Jade, romance novelist and RITA-award-winning editor. We’ll re-envision stories from the big-picture thematic overview down to those much-maligned adverbs and everything in between so you can send your very best work to New York, your freelance editor, your critique partner, and/or — eventually — your readers.
