How can I write the second draft of a novel?

How can I write the second draft of a novel? Topic: How to write a chapter reflection
June 19, 2019 / By Garfield
Question: especially when it's complex and has a lot of reflections, and many things in the main plot need to change. When I wrote it I was enthusiastic about it, but I fear that my new ideas to fix it would ruin it and I never do fix. How can I finally fix it and get on with my second draft?

in such a sitiuation rewrite it from scratch. With all those new ideas floating through your head it would help you better make sense of the book, if you just try to go back and edit you could be rewriting large chunks anyway, or trying to write around a part so that it makes sense. Start over, and this time after each chapter go back and go opver it three or four times to do the editing and make sure you didn't miss and important details. Such books can take a long time to write, but they are well worth it in the end

Deryck Originally Answered: Whatcha think of my poem [1st draft!]?
hey, i think that good, its pretty cool that it goes back to the cars passing by on the highway, it has perspective, and makes you think of everything that happens in one place at one time, i think that poems and songs that actually make you think are really good. people should have things to think about, if they dont weird things happen... so good job, and good luck with revising it if your going to, if you want it longer than one of the things that i am just suggesting is that instead of saying birds bees and butterflies fly... you could do each one seperately, like birds ..., bees...., butterflies flutter..., or something like that, say what each one does, because they can all do different things and then you can add things like the tree leaves blowing in the wind... bees buzz while going from flower to flower... you have alot of options, it depends how long you want it, but since it made my think, i was thinking about all the other things that happen in that one spot, and theres lots. thanks for sharing your lyrics and poems. its fun to read them, and think about them. the more i read hear songs and poems the more ideas i get of what i can add to mine or different ideas for mine

I like your poem. Its a poem about everyday life. But I have to agree with you going through a thesaurus to describe things in better words!!! I really enjoyed! Its a little long, but good for a first draft!! Keep writing! :D

Why no longer? In Iran we've lots of robust novels and short thoughts, and a brilliant form of the writers are muslim, sharia helps them to place in writing additionally a million/2 of them have islamic subject. Like: Chess with the doomsday device.

Benoni Originally Answered: History Question (True or False) No draft riots broke out in the South during the Civil War?
States had much more power in the South than they did in the North. So when it came to drafting soldiers the states fought the battle against the federal government instead of the people doing it. Georgia threatened to secede from the Condereracy if they had to give up their state soldiers near the end of the war. The Confederacy truely died of states rights.

I think this is true, most riots took place in the north. Southerners mostly agreed with the war and anyone who wasn't a plantation owner/slave had to fight anyway. You really shouldn't ask for help for your homework on Y!A...
