Ron’s Tip of the Day Rewrites

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Today I am looking at Rewrites.

What are Rewrites?

Rewrites is simply a term meaning taking a previously written book and rewriting it. Your writing skills grow with you. What skills you had when you wrote your first book should have grown considerably since then. Perhaps it is time to take that book and rewrite it.

What Does That Involve?

At least the following: Reread the book, mark the misspellings, the grammatical mistakes, and even such things as the paging. Then go back to the beginning and start rewriting the book chapter by chapter, page by page.

That Sounds Hard?”

It might be. But you will be looking at the book with fresh eyes. Your imagination will come into play causing you to redo scenes and maybe add new scenes. Or remove scenes altogether.

I learned the value of this from one of my favorite writers, Jerry Jenkins. I have learned since then that rewriting can recharge my imagination and make my newest version better than the original.

 I have been doing this for the past few weeks and the entire process has been energizing. It is equivalent to seeing your first book being written and published. I have now entered the final stages of the rewrite and when ready I will let you know about it.

Tip of the Day: Consider reworking your previous novels.
