You've written your first draft. Congratulations!
You know it's time to revise. You've let your manuscript rest. You've studied the craft of writing. You've read all the advice.
But how do you apply that to your writing? What are the practical steps to take to make your 2nd draft a big step in the right direction? What are some big mistakes authors make and how can you avoid them? What tools can make it easier?
In this free live webinar, editor Jeni Chappelle will provide valuable self-editing tools and tips to help you think like an editor and nail the first revision of your manuscript.
- how to make the most of your revising time by focusing on the right details
- a blueprint to zone in on big problems in your story
- ways to see your own writing with fresher eyes
- tips for the 2nd draft and beyond!

Your First Five Pages
Want to know what makes a novel’s first five pages stand out? Even better, want to learn how to apply that knowledge to your fiction writing? In this two-hour interactive workshop for authors of fiction for ages 10 and above, editor Jeni Chappelle will go over the elements necessary for an attention-grabbing first scene and then guide you on how to make them work in your manuscript. There will be a Q&A as well as interactive group critique of a first scene. After the workshop, you'll receive exercises for your manuscript’s first five pages and feedback from Jeni, as well as critique partners.
I'm excited to be presenting at WriteOnCon this year! You can get more details and buy your ticket at https://www.writeoncon.org/
