Writing a Book – Step 2 – First Revision

UnderwoodNo5 Sketch

In Value of a Daily Writing Habit I described the first step of writing a book, set a goal and write daily. I wrote 1,000 words a day for eight weeks. When I completed a manuscript of 57,600 words, I felt like a sculpturer with the raw shape of my work before me.

In the past three weeks, I read and edited this first draft. I’ve changed the title four times, rewrote the beginning, and added an ending. The process of revision was similar to the writing.

I got up five days a week near 5 a.m. by 7 a.m. I was reading, making corrections, deleting, and making additions. This is the part of writing I enjoy, especially when I feel my words tell an interesting story and share information of value and benefit.

As a voracious reader, I have a critical eye and compare my work with what I read. I feel this book will stand on its own and I will build an audience for it. I’m trusting you will be one of those early readers.

Recalling a Girlhood Idol – Nellie Bly

01302012_nellie-bly-us-postal-service_600

Before I learned about Lorraine Hansberry, Zora Neale Hurston, and Bessie Coleman I read about Nellie Bly. I was a ten year old black girl living in a pastel colored wooden  shot-gun house on an un-paved street in Panama City, Florida when I read about this adventurous, outspoken, writing woman. Today, Google Doodles honors her 151st birthday. And just as Karen O. sings, Nellie Bly made me “want to make something” of myself too.
