Which brings me to my question...just how should I tackle the revising and editing?
I am usually a semi seat of the pantser type which means my actual plotting is minimal and only good for general direction, plot, etc, and leaves loads of room for my character's to explore and evolve. Now, when I revise I am almost the opposite. I look at a scene, paragraph, chapter...something...and ask myself "What was I aiming for here?" and "Did I get there?"...which leads to a yes or no, then "How did I get there?" or "How did I fuck that up so royally?"
So, how should I tackle my very rough draft of Saving Skyfall? I will go through it in a similar fashion, I know where I need to tweak things in general, but do I go chapter by chapter and aim to edit/revise a chapter at a time or should I work in smaller chunks? I am really wondering how much I want to tackle at a time.
Since I am now turning this into book 1 of a trilogy, I have to technically redo the ending as well xD All is fair in love and writing...especially if this story is going to be as epic as I think it will.
How do you revise and edit? Line by line, inch by inch, or in more general terms before taking smaller bites to work with? What do you suggest I do?
Oh, and all I want for Christmas is for everyone to have excellent book sales! Merry Christmas!!
