Hello from my tree-top writing studio. It’s a day of editing for me, which I love. Once the frenetic chaos of the first draft is over, I feel like there’s a safety net beneath my tight-rope once again. I can step back and survey the story’s foundation. Once I’ve got the first draft down, I feel like the real writing can begin.

 

The first draft of anything is shit. ~ Ernest Hemingway

 

 Kill your darlings, kill your darlings, even when it breaks your egocentric little scribbler’s heart, kill your darlings. ~ Stephen King

 

Every first draft is perfect, because all a first draft has to do is exist. ~ Jane Smiley
