When I started the extended version of my book it seemed a bit overwhelming. I started thinking about my short stories and how little they were. Then, ‘LIGHT BULB’, why don’t I right each chapter like a short story. I made a file for the extended version to put each chapter in. Each section stands on it own making it easier to edit and revise. And if I screw up or loose a section it doesn’t affect the whole book. It is not overwhelming anymore. When I’m done I can cut and paste each section/chapter into one whole book.
I love thinking and finding ways that work for me, I will post more “TRICKS” when I learn or find some more. I would love to here what tricks work for you, in whatever you do.
