10 August, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Course Agenda:

Bring along:  a sample of work which you regard as close to finished.  2000 words max.

There is no substitute for the feeling a writer gets when the last word is typed.

But is it the last word?

Most often it isn’t, and there will be numerous re-drafts to be worked through to bring out the best in a piece of writing.

Is the structure all you could hope for?  Are there sections that need to be further developed?  Have you have left your reader on the edge of an emotional cliff, and simply gone on with another section of your story?  Are the chapters in the best order they could be?

Have you checked to be sure the voice in your work is the right one – and consistent?  And what about the pace?  Many early drafts speed up as they go along, with the story overtaking time for reflection or vice versa, both of which unbalance the work in progress.
