Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time – and return comments. This group is all about connecting!

June 2 question – For how long do you shelve your first draft, before reading it and re-drafting? Is this dependent on your writing experience and the number of stories/books under your belt?
ANSWER: I don’t have a real opinion yet. Trying it both ways, will let you know.
I updated my Bio page for any interested.

We all must keep trying different things to figure out what works for us. Have a nice June!

Sometimes best to try both ways and see what works indeed
June 4, 2021 @ 20:38
Fair answer. I think it’s good to try different things until you settle on a method that works best for you.

Juneta, I love your bio! I need to work on my bio for my website, whenever I get it up and running. Thanks for showing me the way. Good luck to all who send in a romance story. Thanks for all you do to assist your fellow writers and IWSG. It is truly appreciated. All best to you!

Usually I’m too burnt out to start editing right away. LOL. But I probably let the draft rest dozens of times. Let us know how it works for you.

For many of us, writing is an evolving process. We often experiment with different ways to access our insight and fresh inspiration.

so much information—way to keep us in the know!
I’ve done it both ways, but I like getting right back into it — I take my breaks while I’m writing the drafts =D
and thanks for stopping by my place

I think it’s cool your trying both ways. You find that each has merit in different situations.
Magic Born or Magic Cursed? look good. Will have to check that out.

I like your cover. As always, when I do manage to make it to your blog, I find out something new. This time it is about the requirements to enter the anthology contest. Thank you.
Wishing you all the best and have a wonderful month of June. Take care.

I agree with others. It will be interesting to hear how each method works for you.

I think there’re arguments for putting it away and editing right away. Too long and you lose touch with your characters. (Looking forward to my free read!)

I haven’t found a set way either.
June 2, 2021 @ 18:22
Hope you figure out which editing method works for you!
June 2, 2021 @ 18:07
The new bio looks good!
June 2, 2021 @ 17:44
I find the timeline varies from story to story.
June 2, 2021 @ 17:06
You’re a hard woman to find. LOL Thanks for visiting my blog.
June 2, 2021 @ 15:58
It’s a good question, innit!
June 2, 2021 @ 15:35
Let me know how it goes. 😉

I’m constantly testing new ways to streamline editing. And I think possibly, I’m snipe hunting. 🤣

Testing out different ways to edit is a good idea.

I like your answer!

It will be interesting to see which way works for you.
