Step One - Reading Over the Rough Draft
This can be a painful part of the process...very painful. I saw some pretty ugly, choppy, corny, and all out ridiculous stuff. Especially in my first chapter. As I read I was cringing and asking myself how I could have written that in the first place. But, I had to tell myself it is for the good of my novel and keep going. I did not take notes while doing this. I did mental note a couple of things, but that is about it.
Step Two - Breaking the Rough Draft into Scenes
Now that I am actually changing stuff, I realize that I didn't really need to do this step. However, it does make it seem less daunting when I am rewriting and changing. I colored each scene a different color to make it pretty. :). I wanted to put a picture in, but I would not get all of the pages to go really small. :(
