179 – Keeping Your Manuscript Smooth

The Mythcreant Podcast

Have you ever had a beta reader ask you a question about a scene you don’t remember having in your story, only to find out it was an artifact from a previous draft? Not only is that embarrassing, but it can also cost you time and money during revisions, so this week we’re going to talk about it. We’ll discuss best practices for keeping your characters consistent across multiple drafts, the consequences of not doing so, and a 100% guaranteed method for getting people to sit still while you read your story to them.
