Like most writers, I hate my writing process. But, also like most writers, it’s my process and I can’t change it.
Before I got serious about writing, I happily wrote “sloppy copy,” the first draft all the way through. Yes, there were lots of errors and I did a lot of revising and editing and cutting and adding. But since I love revising, this wasn’t a problem. The hard part was done — getting the story down from beginning to end. Everything can be fixed.
But somewhere along the way, this changed.
