This Week in the Writing World...December 10

by Brooke Favero
The blogs are steaming with revision and craft this week. Post-NANO, we all need it. So hold off on those queries (for the moment) and spit polish those drafts. I'm currently torn between revision and finishing a new story. It's hard balancing between the two. How do you manage multiple manuscripts?

When I'm working on multiple manuscripts (which is pretty much all the time since I'm a compulsive multi-tasker), I give priority to the one that is getting the most mojo.

Maybe that means it got some positive attention from an editor or agent. Maybe that means my critique group or one of my readers is really into it and can't wait to read more.

Most often it's just the one that's been dominating my thoughts in the shower!

Thanks for the tip Katie. I feel like I have too many story voices in my head.
