The “Now What?” Months are here! In 2014, we’ll be bringing you advice from authors who published their NaNo-novels, editors, agents, and more to help you polish November’s first draft until it gleams. Today, Hannah Rubin, writer and NaNoWriMo intern, shares why it’s important to edit, even if you don’t plan on sharing your novel with anyone else:
At some point, I imagine that I will one day set my sights on the world of publishing—but for now, I am still caught in the indulgent honeymoon phase of simply writing because it is enjoyable, and challenging, and heartbreaking and, at the end of the day, one of the few activities that I can completely lose myself in.
I’ve spent the last two months slowly meandering through edits: first confronting the metaphysical barrier of convincing myself to print the thing out, and then the physical barrier of actually reading through it. It took me nearly three weeks just to make it through that first part.
As we dive deeper and deeper into these months of editing and revision, you might be wondering: why am I choosing to edit? Why do I continue to work my story over and over, read through old paragraphs with garish highlighters, pull my hair out over stale dialogue? Jot down possible character descriptions as I ride the train to work? Why not just press SAVE and stick the whole immaterial file somewhere deep into the codings of my computer; why not get started on something new and un-imagined?
