Once you have written your first draft, you know you are not done. You understand that you need to fix everything from plot holes to punctuation. The starting point is Macro-Editing - Editing the Big Picture. Many spend $1000s on Book Doctors, Finishers, and Developmental Editors to do this work for them. Unfortunately, they are not YOU. Fixing your plot is very different than catching punctuation errors. Your plot is an expression of your own creativity and vision for the story. Too often, developmental editors encourage a vision quite different from yours.

YOU ARE THE BEST PERSON TO EDIT THE BIG PICTURE ISSUES IN YOUR BOOK. YOU JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW.

This two-week course teaches you what you need to know to be your own book doctor.

  • Creating a Plan of Action

You will receive a reminder notice one day prior to the start of the workshop that includes instructions on how to access the workshop forum. If you have not received instructions by the day the workshop begins, please check your spam filter.

The forum will be available the morning (EST) of the day the workshop starts and will remain accessible to all participants thereafter. You will also be given simple instructions on how to create a PDF of all your discussions along with our privacy and data retention policy.
