Behind the scenes of a major revision.

This! I wish more writers talked about this. It's so easy to believe that books just spring, fully-formed, out of their creator's minds like Athena breaking out of Zeus' skull. And for new writers, it's hard to understand how much work happens after the first draft - until they face it, too. Thanks for sharing! It's not as discouraging when you realize it happens to everyone.
