I can’t wait to reach the last half of this process.
“Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.” ~Winston Churchill
We start out with a shiny idea and develop that idea into a plot with characters.
The shiny idea becomes a draft in progress. We love it at first, resent it at some point, but we get it done. It then becomes the shiny new draft.
We play with the shiny new draft, fixing plot holes, adding description, tightening our dialog until it becomes the shiny completed draft.
Take a moment to enjoy this feeling because you only get it once in the lifecycle of each book. Be proud.
