Draft #2

When I started editing, I never knew how difficult the editing process was going to be.  It’s not knowing how to edit, but it’s more of how to keep it all organized with all the edits, without losing my mind.  I’ve saved so many documents and changes, I find myself clicking “save” every five minutes!  (Crazy, I know).  Since I have a wonderful editor, I am thankful for her help when she sends work back to me to edit, but after I get it, I’m overwhelmed, but only at first.

I do have Scrivener, which I love  (Thank you, Wade), so this helps me a lot with keeping it all together, but I have the feeling that I’m not doing things right.  Do you ever feel that way?

So, this I ask you, how do you go about actually doing the work and keeping it all organized?

  1. I won’t tell you my organizational methods because they’d no doubt cause you to be more disorganized 🙂

    I feel each writer needs to work out their own unique system. It’s a real job developing an organizational system and it has to be tuned to the individual.

    I can say that saving every five minutes is nowhere near a crazy habit 🙂
