Write Anything Column this Week

My Write Anything column Second Draft Tips explores the ways in which a writer can move from first draft to second draft.  Included in the article are ideas on how to cull 10% of the content (as per Stephen King’s formulae) and shifting from the writer’s frame of mind to an editor’s.

For those who enjoy podcasts, Paul Anderson has shared his experiences of being critiqued and rewriting in Write, Revise, Repeat in audio.  It includes Paul’s short story  from the Kingston Readers Festival Micro Story Competition 2009in first draft and final draft forms.  For anyone who hasn’t heard Paul read his stories – it is well worth the experience.
