Novel Writing & Revision - tools

Most of my writing focus of late has been concentrated on revising my newest YA novel, The Hidden Force. And the work is paying off as I see a story taking shape and characters coming to life.

Writing a novel is a long process, often made longer when the time to write is carved from an already hectic schedule of a job, a child, a husband, friends, social committments, etc. But sometimes, having the right tools can make the process a bit more precise and organized. I stumbled upon some great tools while reading through the February 2009 issue of Writers Digest (www.writersdigest.com). Check out this link: www.writersdigest.com/article/first-draft-finish-novel for free downloads of a Story Plan Checklist and some first draft worksheets.

And now, I'm off to work on revisions to chapter 6...happy writing!
