Someone once said that there are no great writers, only great rewriters. I am – to misquote Bob Dylan – “learning it these days.”
I wrote in the summer about the chastening (but valuable) experience of the first edits of my forthcoming novel, Fifty-One.
This first round of editing addressed the content of the story, and helped me iron out plot problems and flaws in the storytelling.
The next stage was line-editing.
