Be Your Own Developmental Editor – Revisions with Book Maps

A book map is a visual guide to your book. It breaks your story down, chapter by chapter, scene by scene, so you can see exactly what you have—AND what you don’t. It allows you to be your own developmental editor.

What Attendees Will Learn: how to create a book map to visually track the plot, characters, conflict, and more, find pacing issues and unnecessary scenes, follow plotlines and discover plot holes, and track character growth throughout the story.

Pantsers LOVE this workshop, and plotters do, too. It’s best for pantsers with a completed first draft, and intermediate plotters. (New plotters will need to know something about story structures.)
