PitchWars Revision — the beginning

Well, not really the beginning of revisions. My PitchWars manuscript is on something like Draft #3 with a couple significant restructurings and line edits already. But when you are lucky enough to have a great mentor suggesting improvements, you welcome the whole process with an open mind and heart, as if it is a new beginning for your book. My excellent mentor Rebecca Wells gave me the perfect assignment to get started with: a chart that tracks each major character’s motivations, goals, and consequent actions. Mine is already filled with highlighted notes of details and scene ideas I want to rewrite! Here’s a blank so you can see what I’m talking about… feel free to use as is, or modify to suit your style and manuscript!

Good luck to fellow mentees and everyone in the PitchWars camp!
