When I’m making revisions, I try to look carefully at my transitions. These are the small connections that are woven into the larger narrative.
When we begin revising our manuscript, we are looking at small passages of our work with new eyes and seeing how they might be changed to better fit the story. Most times, I can condense them, but sometimes these scenes get expanded.
