When you’ve finished the first draft of your novel, the fun is over. Now, it’s time to get into the real work: re-writing.
This is a multi-step process and the steps have a very distinct order. Break that order and you could be letting yourself in for a lot of heart ache. Re-writing is where the real writing begins. Everything up till now was getting an idea out where you can see it.
On the other hand, there are those writers who seem to get everything down on the first draft. I hate those people. Fortunately, they’re rare. Rare enough that you’re likely not one of them, so this ebook might just help you to get through the revision/re-writing process with your sanity relatively unscathed.

Found off the beaten path in Freddie Beach.
You don’t have to be a successful standup comedian to write convincing humor. In fact, you don’t even need a keen sense of humor. And you don’t have to worry about your sex scenes turning into pornography once you know the difference between romance, eroticism and pornography.
Humor, sex, violence and foul language are elements of writing that can cause problems for writers. How much violence is too much, or too little? Where do you draw the line with profane language even when you have a character based on a real-life person whose foul language almost obscures everything they say?
Four of the sessions in my Writing Hurts Like Hell workshop deal with these topics. This little ebook presents those sessions along with some exercises to help you tackle these problems in your writing.
