Your True Voice

Revise Purposefully, Publish Fearlessly
 
Begin

Dear author,

You’ve finished the first draft. Congratulations!

You’re almost sure you’ve created something special.

But when you try to revise, you start second-guessing yourself. You can’t get further than the first few pages without rewriting something. And then changing it back.

This is like trying to see your true self clearly, and it certainly isn’t easy.

Please don’t let these uncertainties confine your novel to your hard drive. Don’t let them stop you writing altogether.

You’re a writer at heart, already on the path to finding your true voice and communicating your vision.

Your true voice is hiding in your first draft.

Through purposeful revision, you can intensify your vision and amplify your voice.  When you know how to do this, your book will take on an extraordinary, surprising life of its own and you will send it out into the world fearlessly.

Instead of rewriting the first scene endlessly, you can look at the progress you’ve made.

 

Instead of feeling unsure of your writing, you can see the strengths of your novel.

 

Instead of feeling vulnerable and desperate for validation, you feel empowered.

Revision can be exhilarating. It’s my mission to help.  Subscribe to my newsletter below to learn how purposeful revision can be the path to finding your voice and becoming an empowered writer.

You’re in the right place if:

  • You want to realise the full potential of the story you’re telling and the characters you’ve created.
  • You think you can approach the revision process in a spirit of curiosity.
  • You believe you never stop learning.
  • You’re open to the possibility that I may be able to see latent themes and opportunities in your work that will help you realise your vision for your novel and find your voice.
  • You’re ready to dig deep.

Purposeful Revision is not for you right now if:

  • You’re only interested in taking advice from a fellow fiction writer. I’m a professional reader. When I left my academic job, I decided to put my hard-won skills in interpreting finished literary texts into the service of those producing them.
  • You only want to catch typos and definitive errors in your grammar.
