Revisions: Interview with Suspense Author Jess Farady

Welcome back to The Writing Apothecary and our interview for revision. Today’s guest is published author Jess Faraday and we talk about all things revision. As a traditionally published author she has a different take on revisions and an important one.

In today’s chat we talk about:

  • First drafts
  • Time between revisions
  • Looking as aspects
  • How to flip the revisions on their head
  • And some great nuggets on when to revise. 

I really loved this chat and it was such a fun and refreshing take on revisions. 

About Jess:
