Jan 28 – Monthly Meeting – Editing

Please note that ONLY for this month, the meeting has been changed to January 28th.

We’re starting off the new writing year with a program on Editing. There are so many ways to go about reviewing, refining, and improving your manuscript. What exactly do you edit, you ask? Well…everything.

During the editing phase of a writing project, you take an overall look at the manuscript. Then you break that review process down into pieces: grammar, punctuation, plot, characters, settings, even a look at the proposed title. Editing is not just about grammar, but using more powerful words, great descriptions and tightening.

We’ll be going over some of the processes various members use to edit their work. Kathy will give a short talk on An Author’s Words. And, possibly, Seti will share some helpful tidbits about editing with us.

There will be handouts for help. And there will, as always, be time for everyone to share their experience with editing.

Come to the meeting prepared to learn something that maybe you haven’t tried, yet may be the stroke of brilliance you need. Come prepared to ask questions and offer your suggestions.

    As you probably figured out, I was unable to get to Wichita because of the weather. I will have dues money with me [on the 28th] so I’ve not dropped my membership. I’ll see you soon. John Saunders
