I start by discussing two of the biggest impediments many writers face while writing, and while editing: procrastination and the inner critic.

I then lay out a 5-sage editing process that will help you take your book from first draft to submission:


  1. Relaxing
  2. Reading
  3. Restructuring
  4. Rewriting
  5. Refining
