Rome was not built in a day. And just like that, a book is not crafted in one go. The writing takes vigorous revision and polish to achieve a state that truly satisfactory. And that is why we have come up with the best guidelines to clean up your writings perfectly.
So let us jump right in and check them out.
Give Your First Draft a Rest Before Editing
It is always a good idea to give your writing a rest and breathing room before you dive into it to dissect thoroughly. You should come back to your draft after a while and allow yourself to review yourself with a fresh set of eyes.
Removing Filler Words
When it goes into the revision, make sure to clean and remove each filler word you can find. Every word in your book has a job. Introduction to fluffs just loses the weight of the other words. And that is something you never want to do.
Say No to Adverbs
The great Stephan King once said that “I believe the road to hell is paved with adverbs”. Instead of using adverbs, try to replace them with much stronger verbs.
Order It Out
Ideas do not come to us in the perfect order. That is why, whenever we get the idea of a certain situation, we write it down immediately. But it is time for you to clean up, make sure to put every bit of it in order.
