I’m more than willing to revise my picture book. However…
I’ve now written a half dozen revisions. Some bits of each of them are pretty good, some are not so good, some may be awful, some may be just right. Figuring out how to choose those bits and eliminate the rest has become my dilemma.
This is what I’m going to try. I will put each revision in the same document, but each will have its own color. Then I will cut and paste bits of the different colored versions that are related to one another.
My hope is that when I see the opening page in all the different colors, I can meld the best words and phrases together.
Maybe it will work. May not. If not? Try again!
