    1. With a little tweaking, this book would work as something of an outlining technique with the first two sections. It has some pretty good ideas in it on how to fix one's novel. I also like that she supports books written during NaNoWriMo and has tips for fixing the trainwreck they often turn out to be. Mine have been swiss cheese trainwrecks every time, so I know how important revising is and getting help on this. I like the cute little cat cartoons in the book. Even as most of them put into mind [...]


    2. "These are writing prompts, not editing prompts," I grumped as I neared the 25% mark of the book. And, then, in a blinding ray of inspiration, Hall pinpointed the issue I was battling within my current work in progresswhich led to three days of heavy revision. So definitely some gems herein!


    3. Practical advice on how to turn your first draft novel into a must-read page-turner!This book is a perfect writing aid for a novice author who is looking for practical help and guidance in planning and writing their first novel, or in editing their first draft.I received a free copy of ‘Novel Revision Prompts’ in exchange for posting a review of it. I used the book to edit the first draft of my Gothic / Romantic Suspense novel. Rayne Hall chats to you like a knowledgeable friend. She doesn [...]


    4. Lots of useful bits to help with editingI needed help with line edits and this book gave me a lot of pointers.I will use the plot suggestions on my next novel.Very helpful.


    5. There's a lot of great advice in this volume that can be used for outlining (avoiding some mistakes beofre you make them) as well as revision (making a good manuscript better). My only gripe is that it's padded out with cat cartoons that serve no purpose. If the book was only 60 or 70 pages long, that's fine, the information is useful and worthwhile, but don't artificially inflate the page count to create perception of value. I can overlook the formatting errors -- the font changes from section [...]


    6. In the last couple months I've been seriously seeking books to help improve my writing skills. I've purchased and read over 50 and of all of them Rayne is the best. I've read all of her books, own them all, and refer to them over and over. Rayne puts things in plain simple terms, easy to read and understand, thus making it easy to apply the techniques. I really like not having to read through another author's bragging about themselves before getting to what I really need/want to know. In my opin [...]
