3. Rethink, When You Revise.
Once your first draft is complete, read it without changing anything. I like to create a PDF for the reread, so that I can’t tinker. If it’s an ebook, I’ll save it as a MOBI (Kindle) file, and read it on my iPad.
Your aim at this stage is simply to see the project as a whole. You want to see what you have. Your creative mind thinks in wholes, not parts. If you resist the urge to make notes too soon, you’ll get better ideas.
Next, without going back to reread, make a revision plan. I create one revision note per project in Evernote. I drag the note into the sidebar, so I can find it quickly.
