Don't let the revision process intimidate you any longer. Discover how to successfully transform your first draft into a polished final draft readers won't be able to forget.

Bell draws on his experience as a novelist and instructor to provide specific revision tips geared toward the first read-through, as well as targeted self-editing instruction focusing on the individual elements of a novel like plot, structure, characters, theme, voice, style, setting, and endings.

You'll learn how to: write a cleaner first draft right out of the gate using Bell's plotting principles; get the most out of revision and self-editing techniques by honing your skills with detailed exercises; and systematically revise a completed draft using the ultimate revision checklist that talks you through the core story elements.
