WIR #33: Self-Editing for Fiction Writers

Self-Editing For Fiction WritersBrowne, Renni, and Dave King. Self-Editing for Fiction Writers: How to Edit Yourself Into Print. New York: HarperCollins Publishers. Copyright © 1993 by The Editorial Department.


Now that I've completed this book, the review I quoted when I first started it—

If it was possible to give this book zero stars, I would do it. Or, the first-ever negative-star book. How do they explain, for example, how many best-sellers, including Harry Potter, Steven King, among others that have adverbs.

—is so obviously mindless that you can safely ignore it. Thus the reason why, although I've quoted it again, I've struck it out.

There is so much valuable advice in this that I can see my writing benefiting from it. My aim with this reading was to familiarize myself with the book, and then I shall go back to it later as I am editing stories and make use of what they teach.
