Since I started revising my own novel a few weeks ago, I figured the resource roundup for this month should go in line with whatever I’ve been looking up. I may be an editor, but editing your own work is entirely different from editing someone else’s work. These resources are for your own self revision! There will only be a few resources, though, since most of the advice intersects from each of the individual posts and articles.
How to Edit Your Story Like a New York Publisher by Pamela Hodges from The Write Practice
5 Key Questions Writers Should Ask When Revising Writing by Debbie Harmsen from Writers Digest
How To Revise Your Plot in 3 Easy Steps by Tomi Adeyemi
The Best Way To Revise Your Novel by Tomi Adeyemi
I have been obsessed with Tomi’s resources since I discovered her site, and these three posts are so helpful with revising. I also recommend checking out her worksheets and resources for writers!
Self-Editing For Fiction Writers by Renni Browne and Dave King
This book has ample information on editing your own fiction. I will say that it’s less developmental and substantive editing, and more focused on line editing, but I believe it’s still an invaluable resource for writers in any phase of their writing.
Do you have any resources and tips for your own revising?
