What I mean is, does anyone edit their story as they write?
I mean like this; Say you are working on a novel and you finished only three chapters of the rough draft. Now, you want to edit those three chapters to make them a bit polished than what it was before rough and wonky. Whether the edits/revisions/rewrites or minor or a bit major, the point is that you want to edit all of the first three chapters then you will move on to chapters four to six and repeat the same thing.
Most people will wait till their story is entirely completed to edit and change everything. Others will edit as they write, but once it is all done, then they can redo some parts/chapters to make it a little better for the next editing or something.
What about you though?
I ask this because I am only one to two chapters into The Breakers and Red Reign, wanting to make changes whether grammatical or structural or something else.
There’s nothing too wrong with it other than the sloppiness.
I am just afraid it will screw up my vibe and flow somehow. Yet on the flip side, if I wait to edit once the story is complete, I won’t have the energy to do like I was supposed to do with that House of Naivin story.
sigh I guess I rather write my fiction without editing anything because I either don’t have the patience or don’t know how to edit a flipping story the “right” way.
Anyway, what are your thoughts?
