Dec. 8

I'm a third of the way through my latest manuscripts first draft. I like first drafts. I enjoy pounding them out and seeing what happens and fighting with the characters over what they should and shouldn't do. I also like revising and making scenes smarter, faster, more relevant. What I hate is the nitty gritty comma checks, style issues, and copy edits. Blah. By then I know I'm ready to let someone else look at the book.
How is your writing going? What part of the process is your favorite?
Readers, what bits do you like best? Action scenes, dialog?


  1. I love first drafts because I learn more about my main character.

  2. Hi LA, I agree. It is in the first draft that I find out all sorts of goodies about my characters. Thanks for commenting. Cheers~

  3. I love it all. Each part of writing offers something fun and challenging.
