And another newbie! Hello leelee!

It's great that you've finished your first draft. So many writers never get to that point, so you've already hit a big milestone!

And while revision is very important, don't fall into the trap of only revising while forgetting to write new words. You learn different things with each process. Keep learning and apply it to new writing. Then also learn the skills needed to do a good revision without the prose losing your voice (Your 'voice' will likely be invisible to you, as it's what you sound like to yourself. What is boring to you may be the exact 'voice' that is so appealing to readers.) So, be careful.

You may want to check out Roving Crits to see the writing of others and what critiques they are getting. Maybe even join in. In my early days, I learned a lot by doing crits: the process of reading and if a part bothered you, or that you really liked, then figuring out why. Then articulating it.

So many ways to learn. :) Welcome to FM!
NOTE: I am also "Dreamerscove." At least I think I am. With so many characters running around my head, I'm never quite sure. 'Tis the nature of being a writer.
