This episode sponsored by BundleRabbit
In this fourteenth and final installment in our miniseries on teaching students how to write, Rob asks:
“How can we support effective editing in our students?”
“What happens when your story doesn’t work?”
“How do I know when my book is of sufficient quality to release?”
“How can I most efficiently deal with rewrites in a traditional publishing situation?”
“How can I manage second drafts when my first drafts suck?”
“My grammar sucks. How do I learn to self edit?”
“If we’re focusing on finishing instead of doing a good job, aren’t we setting ourselves up for an editing nightmare?”
“How do I figure out what advice to listen to where my beta readers are concerned?”
What types of editing are there, when are they appropriate, how do they work, and when is hiring an editor advisable?
