Road Trip Wednesday #159: How Do You Revise?

Welcome to our 159th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic is: For many, December is a post-NaNoWriMo revision haze! How do you approach editing/revising? Any tips or tricks or resources you can share?

This image is from Kristin Cashore's blog post this week on her revisions for her most recent book, Bitterblue. It's a great post with many other wonderful (and pretty scary) pictures of her hand-written drafts and their vicious revisions.

Road Trip Song of the Week: This entire playlist put together by The Huffington Post: Best Songs for Revising

Next week's topic: About how many books do you read in a year? Do you want to read more? Or, less?
