Tip Tuesday # 2

For my second post for Tips Tuesday, I’m going to reference Elizabeth Lyon‘s book Manuscript Makeover: Revision Techniques No Fiction Writer Can Afford to Ignore once again because I feel that this book has a ton of writing advice. You can find my review of it here

Anyway, for this week’s tip, it’s going be all about the revision stage of your novel in which Lyon states the following:

“Full development of your characters is one of the most important of all revision tasks, simply because every element of craft – scenes, sequels, subtext, dialogue, exposition, flashback, description, sensory details, settings and theme – is filtered through the fine fabric of your character” – Elizabeth Lyon

Hope this tip is helpful to you ^^

Until next time
