From Stephen King to David Sedaris, the word among the pros is: edit your work. Many, many times. Yet self-editing can be one of the most challenging (or, let’s face it, boring) phases of writing. This session gives you the tools you need to make editing an inspiring part of your writing experience. You’ll come away with:

• A shortcut to improving your opening and closing scenes in 10 seconds or less.
• Hands-on ways to check pacing, characterization, and plot arc.
• A 12-point check list that makes it easy to take your writing to the next level.

The truth is, editing doesn’t have to be painful. With the right tools, re-writing can be an enjoyable way to master writing.
