Revising Your Work

I was thinking about the revision process of writing while I was doing it on a story last night. Then I got to thinking about how I wish I could do that sometimes in real life. You know, take stuff out, rearrange characters and settings, and even add elements in to make it better. We know better how the lives of our characters are going to play better than we know the events of our real lives.

What do you guys think?

Updates

As of a couple of months I've had the opportunity to write more articles for Fangoria magazine just as it changed editors. A great honor for me, since I've been a fan for a lot of years. Recently, I just received my first feature article for the magazine on a film titled, "Hypothermia."

I'm still writing articles for Animal Wellness. Check out this month's issue on Canine Blood Donors.

I recently got a "yes" from the editor of Writer's Journal to write on an article on Copyright on spec.

I'm supposed to have a meeting in the next week or so with a children's book editor to see if we can't get something going with my new picture book "Jack's First Halloween."

Amidst all of this, I'm working on a Young Adult novel that I'm hoping to have finished by Thanksgiving.
