You’ve finally completed your book. Good work! Unfortunately, you still have lots to do before you have a finished product. Completing that final manuscript page means beginning on the long and arduous journey of revisions. If you’re at this point then you should know that there’s a whole slew of tasks you’ll need to do to really tighten up your work. First, take the time now to spell check your manuscript if you haven’t already. Now let it rest. You’re going to want fresh eyes and a fresh mind when you go back in to do the revisions. Next you’ll want to print the whole thing out. This is important and will really help you with the revision process. Read the manuscript out loud and take note of any of your “crutch” words that keep popping up. This is also the best time to make sure that all your verb tenses are in order. Once that’s all done it’s time to send it out to trusted friends. Keep in mind that their advice is likely to be biased so take anything they say with a grain of salt! It’s a long process, but it will really help you sharpen your final product!
