I trust Tiffany Yates Martin with the editing process eventhan I trust myself Read this book and steal her secrets Kelly Harms Washington Post bestseller of The Overdue Life of Amy Byler“Tiffany Yates Martin is an exceptional editor so of course her advice and counsel in Intuitive Editing is exceptional as well Whether you’re a seasoned author looking to fine tune your craft pacing or tension or just starting out and looking for guidance on building overall structure and engaging characters this book is a must read that will take you from idea to finished manuscript” New York Times–bestselling author Allison Winn Scotch“This book is a must have tool every author needs in their toolkit When you are ready to go deeper to dig into the revision process using Tiffany’s Intuitive Editing strategies will help you take your writing to the next level” New York Times– and USA Today–bestselling author Steena Holmes“Authors if you can’t be lucky enough to have Tiffany as your editor then Intuitive Editing is the next best thing Her advice is sound thoughtful no nonsense and given with the comp Tiffany Yates Martin is a super successful development editor so I knew that if she could get a hundredth of what she teaches writers one on one into this book it would be an absolute winner which it isWhat bothers me the most with some craft books is how they are filled with rules and things not to do But in focusing there they avoid the true hard work of explaining how you create a compelling novel eg how do you take a protagonist your beta readers are saying is unlikeable and make them relatable? Or take a set of scenes that is moving along but just ho hum in terms of the reader being immersed and make them truly live and feel your characters’ emotions?What Tiffany teaches is how to critically look at your own work and ask how to let it flower into the beautiful story it can become using your own intuition Yes you can still take a methodological approach to analyzing and revising your story but most importantly it starts with a sense of compassion for your own workThe book walks through how to look at your work one layer at a time starting with character stakes and plot before diving deeper into micro level edits involving point of view and pacing and structureThe appeal is that Tiffany’s paradigm is different Her message is to stop being so hard on yourself and thinking about your book or your early work as broken but instead hone your intuition by looking at other great storytelling and approach your work one layer at a time with the love and care it deservesI can categorically say that every writer needs this book and what it teaches
