I’m chugging away at it, and rewrites are surprisingly easier than original drafts for me. Everything’s already been written, and if something doesn’t work in one spot, well that’s okay because I can shuffle it to another spot later down the line, or just rid of it completely.
How do you handle rewrites?
Google self-publishing. Do it now. The results are staggering and, often, very helpful. And, as always, confusing at the same time. There are so many options, which I think is great. Options writers never had before! It’s a beautiful thing.
No, my question isn’t how to self-publish, it’s how often. Let’s use my Modified trilogy as an example. Dominant Race is scheduled to come out at the end of the month. The sequel, New Fate, could be ready and publishable by the end of July, maybe early August, and the third novella, Selfish Nature, could be ready by October. If I really pushed myself I could have a novella out June, July, and August. But is that too much too fast? I have nothing else ready after those novellas (well, nothing that’s of publishing quality aside from short stories).
So how do you set your self-publishing pace? How frequently do you publish?
