This morning I'm still working on Part I of Cheryl Klein's notes from the NYC Metro SCBWI revision workshop. In a few days, I hope I'll blog about Part II: EXAMINATION, which is considerably more involved, will involve a ton of hard work, and I hope to get to soon. (Lofty aspirations?)
For now, I'm trying to come up with these two points about my manuscript:
All the things you love about it ("amazing things that nobody has done before")
What you suspect needs work ("catalog of faults")
Harder than you'd think when revising without looking at a story you know well but have put in that proverbial bottom drawer for a couple of months...
Back to work! All of us!
