Part of the biggest things I need to address as a writer is doing the hard work of writing multiple drafts. In the past I’ve easily been able to crank out words, but always on something new – doing the easy and exciting part of getting a new project off the ground. This month though is all about drafts. I’m only working on projects that have been written before. Approaching with a new eye, the eye of the editor – not the creator. I don’t really expect it to be as much fun, but hopefully the end result will be even more rewarding.
In somewhat related news, here is the cover I’ve put together for the little Christmas short story I’m hoping to self-publish in the next couple days.
