Finished writing first draft. What next?

I save it in pdf, print it out and read it through. The best place for me to concentrate and do this is on the train or at my favourite art gallery and coffee shop. I don’t like coffee so very often have a cup of tea and a cake, they have a variety of cake and I usually choose the carrot cake or cheese scone. (Part of my author bio includes ‘eating cake’). Anyway, where were we? Oh yes…

After I have printed out I read through, write on it if needed and when I get home type up the alterations.

Some people read aloud but I haven’t tried this yet.

It is then time to send it out to my Beta-readers. I have two groups, one for my fiction work and one for my non-fiction.

My next post will be on choosing a Beta-reader.
