The Weekend Novelist Rewrites the Novel, Robert J. Ray

“You’ve finished the first draft—congratulations! Think it’s ready for publication? Think again. The next stage is all about revisiting and reworking your manuscript—fine-tuning the plot, adding or improving subplots, and fleshing out characters; in short, addressing important structural issues that make or break a novel. . . . Also included are checklists, timed exercises, plot diagrams and charts—all aimed to get you rewriting and revising your draft with confidence. “
