Link Fiesta - Revisions

Here's some helpful stuff I've found around the internet. I'm plodding through revisions so these mostly deal with the nitty-gritty of the revisions process.

Revision advice from Jaye Wells. I love every single one of her writing posts, but this one is sheer genius.

From Veronica Roth: Post 1,  Post 2Post 3, Post 4, Post 5. Veronica has a LOT of posts on the revision process. She really eviscerates her books when she revises and I love that.

Jennifer Crusie has a wonderful series of blog posts where she chronicles her working process. It's called The Twelve Days of Liz. My favorite posts are here and here.

Maisey Yates on teasing out conflict, making your work sparkle, and the power of subtle changes.

Gratuitous House Porn Link: Jeremy Renner, house flipper? Hooked on Houses has a blog post on a house he designed. The house has a barber chair and Escher-style marble floors, and the decor is very Harlequin Presents fabulousness. Check it out.
