I’m going to try something different today.
As I’ve written on the 200WaD Slack channel it would be nice if people could edit each other’s stories. I’ll bite.
I’m writing a post about writing. The first draft is available on Google Docs for anyone to comment on and critique.
It’s a ‘guide’ for aspiring writers. I explore what worked for me, how to get ideas1, how to write your first draft and I touch slightly on how to edit it. I’m planning to write a different article about editing since it’s a big topic.
Feel free, to be honest. I don’t bite. I also won’t take anything personally. Mostly let me know if it’s something anyone would be interested in for the future. While we wait for Basile (not a complaint obviously, software development takes time) we could start critiquing our own work. Obviously, we are not editors, but we’re still a different pair of eyes than who wrote the story. That usually can catch many problems and mistakes that get overlooked.
The Google Docs is going to be up for 7 days. After that, I plan to publish it on my website and here.
Thanks for taking the time to read it and feel free to share yours with the community.
I already wrote about this, but this a more high-level view. ↩
