Ok, since you’ve all been good writers and left your NaNo manuscript in a drawer for a month (you have, haven’t you???), I’m going to focus this month on REVISING TIPS and BETA/CRITTING!
Aren’t y’all exCITed! I know I am!
To kick things off on a humorous note, consider this video, keeping revising in mind.
You can see how setting (playing cops and robbers in the park VS playing cops and robbers in a bank), plot points, character interactions (kissing a loved one VS kissing a stranger)–whatever you choose–can make a big difference!
Erm, grammar can also make a difference.
Ex. Throwing a penny into a fountain to make a wish VS Throwing your cousin Penny into a fountain to make a wish.
Of course, the same words can also have different meanings.
Ex. Playing ball with your grandfather VS playing ball WITH your grandfather (as the ball).
