On the Road: Salvaging Old Manuscripts

By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy

Hi all!

Today I'm over at Write Now Coach! sharing tips on bringing old manuscripts back to life. Come on over and say hello.

Also, former guest author Alex Limberg just launched his Plottinator online course. So if you're looking for something to do over the next ten days, check it out.

Here are the highlight from his website...

​​The Guide I Would Have Killed for ​When I Started out Writing


​(Even though I can hardly kill a spider - imagine that! I like killing on paper only)

I have dedicated the past 8 months of my life to creating the most supportive, most streamlined, most effective, most practical guide to your perfect plot I could possibly create.

This is seriously the best guide on outlining I have ever come across, be it on the internet or in print… by far! And it’s for sure the most hands-on one:
  • I designed this program as a “building-kit,” a step-by-step system that will get you to your perfect plot in 10 days or less.
  • This is a video course you can go through at your own pace. Repeat or skip lessons and come back to them whenever you want. You will receive your personal log-in password and can access the program for unlimited time whenever you are ready. In case you prefer written text, the complete transcripts are also included.
  • Your plot-building process will start with the very basics, so you don’t have to know anything about plotting and outlining beforehand.
  • I made sure to break down concepts that might sound confusing, like “subplot” or “pacing,” into easily digestible chunks that are simple to implement.
  • What part of your story comes to you first? You can start plotting the standard way from the beginning; or from a character you have; or from a middle or end scene you have; or even just from a theme or image.
  • 36 printable fill-in-the-blanks templates, cheat sheets and checklists will force you to focus on what matters and make your plotting process crystal clear to you.
  • ​You will also be able to look over my shoulders while I create not one, but three complete plots in three different genres (romance, fantasy and mystery). Before every little step you make, you can watch me make that same step three times for three very different plotlines (then find the full plots in the bonus section).
  • This building-kit isn’t there for you to create some plot, somehow, with a beginning, a middle and an end. No, this is for you to create a thriving, exciting, well-rounded plot that has everything all the great stories we all love have.
  • Receive all future add-ons and extensions to the main program for free
You will set one foot in front of the other, and within 10 days maximum, you will be holding your exciting, polished outline on 3-6 pages in your hands.
