Book In A Year Series, Month 7: The Power Of A Rewrite, The Once Over

So, you did it.

You did a thing!

You completed a draft of some thing that only existed in your head. Now, you have to go through the process of (gasp!) EDITING.

I know, I know. This sounds scary, it sounds intimidating, but this is good thing! Since you have committed to finishing this work, you can either change, put in, or expand. But for this portion, this is what I call The Once Over.

During The Once Over, you just do two thing: celebrate and step away. You take the time to celebrate and enjoy the fact that you wrote something. That you–yes, YOU–wrote something. Before making any changes to a work, celebrate that you wrote it first!

Next week? We get to the ADD IN’s.
