David Moody – Author Of The Hater Series
Once the first draft is complete, I print it off and edit it from paper. I make notes directly on the manuscript and I also keep a separate document where I list my bigger concerns as and when they come up – themes or plot points I think need developing, alternate scenes/storylines, etc. Again, this is a good thing. Think about the point I just made about getting to know your characters. It stands to reason you’ll understand them better as you finish the closing chapters of your first draft than you did when you started writing, so there’s a good chance they might have done things early on in your book which might seem out of character or somewhat illogical by the end.
