First Drafts: Get Off Yer Duff

We all have this problem. OK, most of us have this problem. Certainly I have this problem: getting that first draft done.

Edan Lepucki takes a look at how other writers get it done in this post at The Millions.

How do you knock out the first draft? And what comes after?

Thanks for the link. It's good to know that virtually every writer struggles with the first draft. I just start rambling about a character in first person until I inevitably switch to third person when the story demands it.

I tend to struggle all the way through my first draft. The rewrite the story keeping elements I liked.

Only once this second draft is done, do I revise and edit. :-)
