11 Ways to Fix a Novel

11 Ways to Fix a Novel

  1. Take a look at the overall plot and structure. Ask yourself if it represents what you’re trying to say, and how you’re trying to say it.
  2. Write a synopsis.
  3. Take a walk through your scenes. Write them down and look them over. Let your ideas flow.
  4. Create a storyboard.
  5. Try a new font, and read it again.
  6. Ask yourself what is your theme, what is your character’s motivation, and is your plot structure clear?
  7. Say your ideas out loud to yourself and share them with trusted individuals.
  8. Write down any possible changes as they come to you.
  9. Take out meaningless words.
  10. Record yourself reading your story out loud then listen to it. Take out any sentences that you don’t like.
  11. Last but not least, repeat these steps for a finished and polished manuscript.
