Thoughts on Finishing A Terrible First Draft Of What May Be My Next Book
But also may not. Gotta love the writing life!
- •Well, that is just terrible.I've published 12 novels. I often feel this way at this stage. Not always, though. More reason to be neurotic!
- •I forgot, like, 3 things I meant to weave into final scenes.Whoops. Glad it is just a draft.
- •If I die unexpectedly and someone finds this draft, I will die again of embarrassment.Thank Anne Lamott for this, as she wrote about it Bird by Bird, my writing bible, under Shitty First Drafts.
- •Whew.It all counts.
