Novel, Draft One, Day Two
I had forgotten about this: writing a first draft is always an exercise in learning to ignore myself. I want to know if I'm in the process of crashing and burning, but at this point, my gut does a spectacularly poor job of evaluating my writing. My first drafts always suck. I'm much better at revising my drafts than I am at creating them. In general, life would be so much easier if I could just get things right the first time.
