I said I was taking a week off of writing, but I have to admit that I cheated a few times. I'm really excited about editing the young adult novel I wrote a few years ago. I've learned a lot since writing it. I still love the story, and there are plenty of ways that I can make it stronger.
I'm trying to figure out what kind of goals to set for editing it. A daily word count? By the number of pages? Getting it all done by a certain date? I'm not sure where to start. Also, I'll have to go through it several time. Do I set my goals for only the first go around? If I don't set goals, I'll tinker with it forever.
I need your help. What kind of goals do you set for editing and rewrites?
