Seven Drafts: Self-Edit Like a Pro from Blank Page to Book

By Allison K Williams

"Seven Drafts: Self-Edit Like a Pro from Blank Page to Book" divides writing and revision into distinct stages, with a new focus in each draft. Allison’s frank, funny voice encourages writers to tackle even big editing tasks with a sense of humor and a feeling that someone who understands is on their side. After sections on story, elements of writing craft and structure, seeking and using feedback, and the publication process, "Seven Drafts" goes beyond the technical and into the mindset of a writer. How can envy be employed to fuel your own work? Where do you find a writing community? How will literary citizenship influence personal process?
