Different Versions & Master Documents
I probably tinker with Rough Draft 1 three or four times before it is Rough Draft Final.
At times throughout the book, I may do master documents of what I have so far just to see how many pages I have, or correct something globally.
When I got the line edits of Protector of the Flight, there were a couple of places where Things Did Not Make Sense. So I went back to the individual Chapters (which I keep Forever). I saw where I’d moved text or deleted something. One 3 line portion got moved, the other problem sentences got cut (that is the easiest way to fix a problem. Cut it.)
So this blog is in the general topic of Keep Everything and Back Everything Up. I could have just cut what Didn’t Make Sense, but I wanted to know WHY things didn’t make sense, what I had before, if it needed to go back into the book. This time the answer was no.
May you find everything you need smoothly today.
